The menu is quite large and offers something for everyone. I had the brie and ham pancake-absolutely delicious! The service was eh ok but from the looks of it they were/had been bombarded with a cruise ship crowd.

A delightful breakfast option close to town and the Renaissance. Service was attentive and the food was well-prepared. Their bacon is perfectly crispy! The Dutch pancake (walnuts, bananas, and honey) was a wonderful treat! A lot for one person but very delectable! Highly recommend.

You can find their menu at their website. Prices aren't listed, but as I remember breakfast for two was about $25 without tip.
