This cafe is beyond great. Hollandaise sauce is insanely good, they are efficient, welcoming and bust out amazing food from the tiniest kitchen ever. Highly recommend.

A nice little store front breakfast spot. Reasonable prices for reasonable food. Nothing fancy but good service. I had the Classic Eggs Benedict, which was good, but they don’t make a classic hollandaise sauce, still tasty. A good selection of sides, to meet various moods....More
