We were in town for a wedding and wanted to grab breakfast. The waitress was rude. When we asked questions about the menu she would roll her eyes or make noises. Never came back to fill our coffee.

The eggs benedict with the mango salsa was outstanding! The prices are a bit high but the food & service are very good. The decor could use a little upgrading considering the menu prices.

I had the Apples/Cranberry/Cream Cheese French Toast, which was two huge pieces of homemade bread with the filling in-between. My husband had the PBJ/cream cheese French Toast. Even the bacon was good. It was extremely busy, but the service was still quick with a smile...More
