A short line up on a Sunday afternoon, but definitely worth it. Great food from a tiny kitchen, amazing! I had the Eggs Benedict special (on bacon and potato skins), and it was great, eggs were...

A cozy restaurant, great for Sat/Sunday brunch. Always a hopping spot. The portions are healthy, they sure don't skimp.The service is great and there is always a full pot of coffee waiting for you. Food is freshly cooked and delicious. Home made soups, wonderful fish and chips. Prices are quite reasonable. Will return again and again.
