Good food. The scones are great. Very nice, clean and modern. My only other comment is that it takes too long for your food to arrive. But the food was really delicious. I would certainly return.

The scones are light and fluffy delicious! I also love the lunch time sandwiches using the scones as the top and bottom!

It seemed like a popular place for breakfast and brunch for the locals. We were there on a Sunday morning and it was already packed. We picked up variety of scones and they were all good. Nothing exceptional but fresh!!

There is an excellent variety of scones. They are fresh daily. You can even buy scones pre-baked so you can bake them at home. Nice touch if you are looking for really fresh ones - hot and melt in your mouth.

Yes. I buy scones to go whenever I can. The caveat is to get there early because they can run out of scones by the end of lunch. They even offer to see frozen scones that you can bake at home.
