I love the food, but there is one waitress that is always so mean. She doesn't say anything to you except," there ya go", when the food arrives. I got her twice and both times I just wanted too get up and leave. She is just so bitter, it makes the customers feel like they should not be there.

Down home traditional Finnish breakfast. I had a made fresh every Saturday Finnish Oven Pancake (Pannukakku) with fresh blueberry compote. My partner had french toast made with nisu (a sweet bread with a bit of cardamom). The texture was unusually supreme. Both were tasty and the service up at the counter was no nonsense and fast.

Apple french toast was good the rest of the breakfasts were mediocre. The server was beyond terrible. She was in a bad mood and let everyone know it. If you expect refills on coffee, you better have time to wait (like an hour or two). It was mid-morning on a Monday and not very
busy. Spent a few days in the area and this was by far the worst eating experience.

St a little dry. Service was prompt and friendly. Can't miss with their food
