Great selection of food. Be prepared to line up for a table. Well worth the wait. Quirky little place with an apt name. Food was great and portion sizes are good. The “Thelma” was very tasty!

Love this place, good value meals, we had breakfast and there was a great selection, with good coffe. But the main reason you go there is for the staff, you’ll enjoy a great meal, at good value, with plenty of laughs.
