Delicious breakfast plates with the option of adding a mix of cheese/onions on the potatoes. Fruits, smoothies and juices are great!

This is a busy place and no wonder - very extensive breakfast menu and just about something for everyone. Good service, served efficiently by friendly staff and food was pretty good too. Prices quite reasonable. Place to go.
