We had breakfast here while staying at the hotel. Great service, but I found my food to be quite average. The waffle tasted rubbery as though it came from a microwave, and the cooked apples as though they were from a gallon metal container.

Since the Duke does not have a continental breakfast in the lobby, this restaurant is what is available in the hotel at breakfast time. Sufficient portions are served. Coffee was good. Sourdough toast was good.

We are long-term Yorktown residents, and have always come to this restaurant. The food is delicious, and very reasonably priced. The staff is friendly and could not be more helpful or courteous. We will certainly come for breakfast again.
