We love this place. Popped in for breakfast day after Christmas and sat at the bar. It was very busy but service was quick, good and efficient. I loved the eggs benedict.

They have the best breakfast in town. Omelettes are to die for!! All breakfast items are delicious. Restaurant could use some updating, but service and food is outstanding.

We went for brunch today with family. There was plenty of choice on the menu. Service was friendly and attentive. Food was wholesome and tasty. It was perfect for the kids, as it's not fancy or pretentious. Will be back with the kids.

I had the veggie skillet with avocado and goat cheese and my husband had the breakfast burrito. I had a bite of his and both were amazing!
