Walk in and grab a table with a view of the street. Eggs, pancakes, french toast. The service is friendly, the food delicious, the potions large. Also, they don't rush you. Found it a tasty, relaxing good value.

We were hoping for fresh seafood and a quality meal, but we were disappointed. First of all, they wanted to seat us next to a large, noisy group. We opted for outdoors. The Greek salad was very good with a nice dressing. The swordfish was...More
