Quirky little restaurant/cafe just away from downtown. Very good staff - polite, friendly and professional. My strata was delicious as was my partners eggs Benedict concoction. Uncomfortable seating though -but service was quick so we didn’t mind.

My husband and I had breakfast here and we both enjoyed our dishes. I had the strata and he had eggs benedict. Both were very good. Service was good, our waitress was very friendly and attentive.
