Seriously one of the best breakfast you will ever have! Great for kids as well! Pancakes, Irish Benedict or even a simple bacon egg and cheese on English muffin. All were amazing!

If you are lucky enough to get the window table you get one of the best breakfasts in town with a view. Great selection, good quality. Come early or be prepared to wait.
