We walked here from our hotel as it is right downtown off market square. We sat at the counter. Service was good. My husband loved his stack of pancakes. My cheese omelette was just fine and came with a good biscuit as a sides option.

The coffee shop has all the trappings of a great diner experience: quality coffee, decent and cheap breakfast, and good service. The place is pretty small, so come early on the weekends.
