Best breakfast in town. Made from scratch, so it takes awhile. Best lunches in town. Food is fresh, local, organic and prepared well. No salt shakers here. It is pricey, but in this case you really do get excellent food.

Enjoyed the most delicious lunch there today. Excellent preparation and creative and innovative menu selections. Loved the escargot. Can't wait to go back for breakfast! Hard to decide, everything sounds so good.
