You may have to wait on a weekend morning, but it will be worth it. Full breakfast menu, almost anything you could want. Great coffee. Smoked salmon benedict is not to be missed.

Very casual & very friendly. They put nice little twists on the traditional and it fun ways. If you aren't a foodie but just like good food around a good vibe you will fit in fine here.
