Smoked salmon omelet was just ok, corned beef hash was just ok, omelet was good, eggs Benedict was great. Portions were large. Service was friendly. Get there early, we waited 45 minutes at 9 am on a Sunday. The place is small.

They do have gluten free bread. It's a little more expensive but I think it's made in house. Then, of course, they have all the typical gluten free, eggs, bacon, fruit, and some vegetarian items that are gluten free as... More
