We got there around noon on a Friday and were seated upstairs. Ashley was great and handled all of the full tables upstairs without missing a beat. She was super sweet, attentive, and very prompt.

We enjoyed a lovely breakfast at this local eatery. The staff was very friends and the restaurant filled up quickly after we arrived so get there early so you can grab a seat next to the train tracks. You'll soak in the quaint scenery while sipping your morning coffee.
