My boyfriend and I live close to this place and decided about 2 months ago to go try out their Sunday Breakfast. I was really satisfied with the meal and their Fishcakes are just so delicious.

Breakfast was ok, A typical buffet style, not much to choose from, and the hashbrowns were those tiny frozen ones that were cooked to death u had to eat them with a spoon, waitress was very nice, But food not worth the 15.50 each.

$48 after tax and tips for two people for the breakfast buffet, juice and milk. The eggs had no flavor. There was no real maple syrup for the pancakes. The scones were dry and floury. A very nice view.
