Breakfast was a real treat, the food was wonderful with extras like home made jam, and the atmosphere lent itself to taking time to visit and enjoy the great food.

Great menu items. I really like the portobello sandwich. Everything is from local farms. Breads are delicious.

Great location in a very historic downtown building. Amazing breakfast with the best in-house cured bacon. The eggs Benedict are incredible as are the biscuits and gravy

Had breakfast here with friends from Chicago a couple of weeks ago. Excellent service after a short wait on a Sunday morning after church. We all ordered relatively simple breakfast meals, they were delivered hot and cooked properly to order. Good breakfast, nice atmosphere.
