We were looking for a breakfast spot, since we were staying in the area. We didn't have a wait (although it was earlier than the normal brunch crowd) and the wait for food wasn't that long. The breakfast sandwiches and pancakes are wonderful! Friendly staff.

We visited at 10 on a Saturday morning and got a table straight away. Out waitress was prompt, care friendly, and had no problem accommodating our special order. All of the food was delicious and cooked perfectly.

Quick efficient service with creative food. The lobster Benedict was excellent. The pancakes were good but not the softest or fluffiest I've ever had. Great choice where you'll get a solid brunch.

We went there together 2 times. Pretty sad than the second time they didn't serve the summer special menu which was amazing. Their basic menu is okay but not really original. Their croissant is not homemade for sure but not a great quality too. You...More
