Staff acted like we was in their way. Only three others in the place and it took ten minutes to be waited on. Food was awful and over priced. Will not be back ever again.

Outdoor seating is preferred. They do not have a lot of omelette's but many different breakfast choices. Best of all, they really are open to having your dog resting next to you on the sidewalk as you eat. Lot's of fun.

After reading reviews on Trip Advisor, we decided to eat breakfast here. We were totally disappointed. The service was slow and the food was not that good. I asked for a glass of water and got a very small glass of water while everyone around...More

The menu has been scaled back to limited. To approximate any of our formerly favorite omelettes, the build your own option was very pricey. Service was extremely poor. It was difficult to get explanations and then our order was completely wrong with no apology for...More
