Good place for basic breakfasts with a little extra flair. Portions generous and prices very reasonable. Got there at 8:30am on a Saturday and had choice of tables. Filled up quickly, with a wait for tables by 9am. Worth a try!

We came for a late Saturday brunch (around 1:30) and had to wait only 20 minutes. Better yet, the host offered all of us who were waiting coffee or water - such a nice gesture! Lots to choose from on their expansive breakfast menu... I...More
