Watched a rat wiggle its way across the floor as the cashier stared on in a disinterested fashion. Will NEVER be going back.

We only went here for breakfast as it was close to our hotel. Really delicious and comfortable with great service. A nice neighborhood café with quirky design elements and wonderful sausages and buttermilk pancakes. Nice service too!

the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
