We had lunch here one afternoon and came back the next morning for breakfast. Great food and super friendly service. It's a nice change from the usual touristy eating places.

We ate here once when other places were closing for the day. Their food and service was above average. I can't remember what I had that day , I do remember it was good. Gotta get back there soon.
