Walked here along the bay from the Bahia Hotel,about 20 minutes.Staff were very friendly and welcoming and we got seated straight away.Plenty of choice on the menu and the food and coffee was really nice. Prices very reasonable for such quality food and drink.

Had a wonderful brunch here. Blueberry pancakes were enormous but light and very tasty. The side of bacon and beautiful fluffy scrambled eggs was a delight although probably a bit excessive alongside the pancakes. Service was friendly and efficient. Would strongly recommend this place for good value and tasty well prepared food.

Had breakfast here with the family on vacation. Portions are generous and the food is excellent. There is usually a line outside but it moves relatively quickly and the food is worth the wait.

The best, light, fluffy pancakes. Sage potatoes are fabulous. I also tried the cinnamon French toast which was super sweet but very good. The scrabbled eggs were also a hit. We had a party of 8 and everyone was happy with their dishes. Service was efficient. Would definitely return.

ate here after a recommendation from some local friends and it didn't disappoint. It was the best breakfast we ate in 3 weeks holiday (vacation) in the US. I had the steak and eggs whilst the rest of the group tried different options. we all enjoyed it. good service and good value.

Arrive before 9 am unless you want to wait, although it is worth the wait. I had rosemary fried potatoes with rosemary toast, scambled eggs and bacon. My friend had a huge fluffy pancakes that had a fruit glaze for decoration but tasted delicious.

This review is for the downtown J Street location. We went here for breakfast and the food was great. The French toast is to die for...a huge portion of the tastiest French toast made with homemade cinnamon bread. My husband had the blueberry pancakes and they were really good. The one thing I will say is be prepared for a... More
