I love stopping in for coffee and breakfast at this little joint every time I visit Hamilton. The historic house that it is located in is beautifully restored and the "Friends" themed decor is too fun. Great place to relax.

The flies were more active than I would have liked but sitting on the wraparound porch situated above ground level was delightful. I had tomato basil soup which was excellent. The club sandwich was good.... More
