The breakfast is great!! Toast is crispy, French toast is soft and Egg Benedict is great. The potatoes are also yummy. Just love everything except there is no choice for coffee

We ate at this restaurant twice - once for dinner and another for breakfast. The food was great, the staff really helpful and good service, and the light filled space relaxing and just right. Couldn't ask for anything better.
