One of the best things about this place is its unassuming decor--it sets you up to think it's just another diner type place, and then the menu, while there are a few things off the beaten path, is pretty standard. But the expert preparation of the food, the details (flaky currant scones that reminded us of our time living in Wales--the real deal), and the friendly service (they knew who we were by the second time in the place) makes this place a must-visit. After we discovered it, we went three times in a week-long stay.
The fried polenta is AMAZING. creamy polenta lightly crisped on the outside with sauteed mushrooms and pinenuts in proper proportions floating inside. Brilliant. We had it with perfectly poached eggs--just the right runniness in the yolk, served in a separate dish but without a slosh of water in the bottom--all around great. The sausage and the bacon were both wonderful additions. Many of the egg dishes come with potato-carrot pancakes which are prepared thin and are subtly spiced--not a hunk of mushy potato in sight, and not overly fried either. The pancakes lived up to the rest of the menu--fluffy and light, beautifully prepared, with wonderful fresh fruit as a topping option (not sugary compote). We were well taken care of by the staff, and the service was attentive, caring, efficient, and friendly. We never had to wait, but we did arrive at the end of a rush on a Sunday (around noon or so), and saw that they have a sign-up list at the door for busy times. It is a small dining room but worth the wait. Great place, highly recommended. I'm going to miss that polenta.
