The staff are great. We had a very enjoyable brunch. Many happy visits. Today, I splurged and had the coconut French toast. No need to get syrup for delightful brunch item. My wife had excellent buckwheat pancakes with real maple syrup. The cafe au lait...More

I enjoy my breakfast outdoor here. It's at the far end of a small side street of shops off the heart of fourth street. Just find peets coffee look up hill and it's about ten shops up. The name their own sausage and the buckwheat...More
