Great place for breakfast - lots of choices and cooked to order. Sometimes there is quite a line to get in, but it is worth it to wait.

Such a yummy lunch! From egg sandwiches to the fruit plate to the potato leek soup to the BLT, the food was really delicious! The mayo and salad dressing are homemade! Wish I found this place years ago!
