Our server was great. The breakfast potatoes were over spiced with paprika and herbs. The French toast was soggy and under cooked in the middle. The coffee was delicious.

Food was good but with only 4 tables occupied it should not have taken 30 minutes for breakfast to come out. Chris was very good though.

Hi. I'm sorry that I can't help you with this question. My suggestion would be to email them directly and give them as much dietary information as possible. Sandy
