This restaurant was just as cute & quaint as the reviews said it was! On top of that, the food was great as well- especially "Maia's French Toast"! Warning, no credit cards accepted and get there early. Place fills up quickly and there is no...More

Small place with big portions. Good to excellent breakfast choices although the omelettes could use a few more spices. Lunches are also good and the service outstanding.
