This neighborhood dinner has been the go to place for Sunday morning breakfast for years. The truth is that the place is good for breakfast or Dinner any day of the week. The desserts are homemade on the premises. For all of you dessert lovers "They are to die for". I can see Lemon meringue pie now.
