Love this place for Sunday brunch! Beautiful atmosphere right by the lake, great selection of quality food and consistently nice service! Eggs benedict, smoked salmon and oysters are my favourite and of course macaroons and raspberry pie! 3 drinks are included!

They do have a separate room that could be used for a private party. I have never attended a cocktail party there but they may do them. Beautiful view for any type of gathering. Check with the restaurant.
