We had breakfast here yesterday. As we are from Holland we are not used to have a hot breakfast but what we ordered here was very nice. The fried potatoes were awesome!

This is a nice little restaurant right on Essex Street. The food was very good, and the service was awesome! Huge portions for small prices. Good place to sit and watch people walking by as you eat breakfast or lunch.
