Love this place! The breakfast is really good but be prepared to wait. Everyone else in town thinks it's good too. They have a nice coffee bar that you can help yourself to while you are waiting. They have good food at a good price. Also the patio is,fog friendly.

Our server was both friendly and efficient. My wife had a Salmon dish and I had a Homemade chicken salad sandwich- both were excellent. Reasonable prices- efficiently friendly... More
