Laurie, I'm very sorry to hear you were so disappointed in your experience with us this time around. Pedro is a busperson. He cleans and sets tables, then brings coffee and water as requested. He would have informed your food server about bringing your orange...More

This is a hopping place for breakfast. Get there early or be ready to wait a bit. Food and service were both good.

Superb establishment. Gluten free pancakes and bread are available in addition to the extensive breakfast menu. The staff are attentive and knowledgeable. There may be a wait for 5 to 15 minutes for a table, but then to me that is always a good sign.

Not from my memory. We sat at a booth...service was very fast and the backs on the booths are pretty high so there is some privacy.
