Love the Eggs Benedict platters here. The Italian the seafood and the others are delicious. Wait times can be long. Reservations are a good idea. Weekdays an even better idea. My friends and family love their omelets and pancakes

Went with husband and a friend. Got an omelet which was just ok: lots of spinach, not so many mushrooms. Hash brown potatoes: didn’t really enjoy the spiced ones that I picked. Overall, too pricey for the quality.

This was our first visit, early for breakfast. Everything is fresh made so you need to plan to wait to eat. Apple pancakes with FRESH made whip cream was soooo delicious. And their biscuits are home made - yum!

My wife and I stopped for breakfast a few weeks ago and were surprised by the size of the new location. It's at least twice the size of the old place that had people waiting in line outside every time we passed. Apparently, based on...More

In addition to delicious, the food served here is beautiful. They take their time to ensure that every dish is visually and flavorwise gorgeous. The waitstaff is great.
