Fresh breakfast at good value. Good ambient and non intrusive staff. Seems to have a great spirits collection for drinks. Can definitely see myself returning.

Wish we lived closer so we could try more of the items on the menu! We were here for breakfast and the choices were amazing. They have small, medium and larger plates plus sides. It's family style so you can choose things to share

They told us it was going to be an hour and a half wait to be seated, but if you just stalk the people at the bar, it's a great method. We snaked our way into seats within 5 minutes of being there. PERFECTION. Although...More

No parking. We walked from our hotel. We never felt unsafe. We walked around for hours downtown, my wife and I, at all hours of the day and night. No problems. Always be smart.
