We had the chicken salad on croissant (huge amount of chunky chicken salad) and the lunch special--fried salmon on Benne seed bun. Both were good. Service was friendly and quick. Can eat in or outside. Also had goulash soup-- very beefy, if that's your taste.

We stopped in for a nice breakfast, the price was right and the service and food were great. The patio is a lovely place for morning coffee and a little people watching.
