OMG this Frittata is huge! I only ate about 30% of it. Heaped with potatoes and vegetables, this covered a very large plate and was four inches high. It's a small building that's not very impressive from the outside (or inside), but who cares? Very...More

The staff are incredibly friendly and attentive. Don't let the 'local' feel turn you off to the best breakfast ever. That's what makes this place authentic and special. They don't take reservations and don't take credit cards. The 1/4 frittata with veggie/meat is incredible!! The...More
