Great food, goo for small groups or couple due to limited space. Service was excellent, street parking or parking structure 2 blocks away. Not necessary to pay parking meters if dining there for breakfast. Mostly an adult venue.

We both chose the special of the day, in two varieties. I had a hamburger with mushrooms. It was juicy and good. Very satisfying. Service was a bit slow, though that may be the nature of a luncheon place, where most people are there to...More

When I was part of a group of 15 or so, we let them know a couple of days in advance, and they accommodated us. I don't know if it was an actual reservation or not, since I didn't arrange it.
