We ate here for a late breakfast. It was really yummy and they served generous portions. The staff were really friendly and we liked the vibe of the place. The coffee was very good too! Vegan and vegetarian options, yay!

How can anyone make a good comment about this place. The first thing they did is walk out the back door with a kitten and then place a dirty menu on the plate you have to eat from.....How has a health inspector not seen this....More
