Close to Cornell campus, charming room and atmosphere for brunch. Very much enjoyed the stack of pancakes and maple syrup. Second visit here for brunch and would recommend it. Service was great despite the crowd.

Eggs served cold- BLT with one tiny piece of bacon- they automatically add 18 % to bill just for two people. Waitress had 18% before doing anything and she did very little. Server not apologetic when informed of mistakes.
