Wonderful little find on 57th. They were very accommodating to us, especially considering the big rented stroller we arrived with. The food was delicious, and not as expensive as one would think for a restaurant in this neighbourhood.

Great food and excellent service. Had some eggs, home made sausages, fresh orange juice and coffee. Morning cannot have a better start. Would go again. Portions were to big for me but from that I cannot complain.
