We ate brunch outside on a most pleasant day. The eggs were perfectly presented and delicious. The sun was warm. There was a lot of activity on the street.

Unique atmosphere...interesting decor...small yet spacious somehow! Inviting and homey with great servers. Not the healthiest options knocked it down a star for me...but...that's a personal preference! Excellent teas! A long standing and beloved spot.
