Do not miss. Eat in or take it back to your room. The croissants are fabulous. Chocolate croissant with champagne ANY time ... keep a couple around so you’ll have them.

We had brunch on Sunday and the food was simply delicious. The crab cake benny was tops in its class with lots of sweet, fresh crab, a well executed hollandaise and well seasoned breakfast potatoes. Get a side of the hash, you won't regret it!...More

We were here for breakfast midweek during the winter (March). Only 2-3 other tables occupied. We opted to share an eggs benedict, which was tasty but nothing spectacular. The other option we shared was a stuffed French toast. Unfortunately the French toast was very dry....More

Dear Mr. Pinkham: I'm not sure how you can say "all the other reviews," if you take the "poor" and "terrible" reviews equal about 20% of the reviews posted. Another 20% defined it as average. We appreciate getting good food for a good value for our money. It seems that was not apparent for us and others. I may indeed be incorrect on the seating numbers, but July Fourth weekend, one would think that :excess" space would be in demand. I do not wish to get into a pissing match here. I try to be as forthright as possible with my reviews. If a place excels, I will post it as such, even noting minor missteps. But if a place is deserving of poor marks, I will post that too. Yes, it is subjective, but I've eaten in some awesome low and high end places, and I've eaten in some horrible high end and low end places. Please accept my and the other less than wonderful reviews as constructive criticism and use it for the betterment of your establishment. I hope you succeed in that task.
