Cosy Sunday breakfast on a blustery March morning. Basic menu with local (anadama bread) and natural (chickpea breakfast bowl) additions. Little storefront with mostly tables for two, some fours, and a breakfast bar. Sweet and attentive service. Delicious!

Very friendly waitress greeted me and made me feel at home. Simple breakfast (omelet, English muffin, potatoes) arrived shortly after I ordered. Omelet OK, home fried potatoes OK, English muffin could have been toasted a bit more.

We were lucky enough to find a space in this tiny cafe for breakfast without waiting, but the queue quickly developed, with several waiting outside with their coffees. Food was good, the kitchen was efficient, we were able to watch, and the service was friendly.
