Agree with others that service is slow, but they do a lot of catering too which slows down in house orders. Fantastic food and great variety of fresh options. The atmosphere is awesome. Small and cozy dining room, especially in comparison to the tourist traps that are common in the area. We are locals and love this spot!

Painfully slow. Limited seating. It's an event, though. The food is worth waiting for - if you are not in a hurry.

Not sure if they weren't ready for increased volume for Columbus day, but the service was very slow. It's a small place and there were two servers, so maybe the problem was in the kitchen? The food was delicious, admittedly, but after waiting 45 minutes for it, we were both in grumpy moods and didn't enjoy it as much as we would have with a shorter wait.

Based on the positive reviews on TripAdvisor we sought out this place for breakfast, but were disappointed. The service was slow - the staff were either more interested in chatting with some customers who were friends or regulars or barely visible - and the food just okay. My eggs were insipid and watery though the orange juice was very nice.

Loved the early morning atmosphere of this cafe. The food is amazing and reasonable priced. If you love hot chocolate, this is your place. Be ready for a surprise, it is amazing !!
