We only spent about 45 minutes waiting for our order to be taken, after being admonished by the waiter at the counter for daring to approach him and inquire about receiving service. The only reason we stayed is because it was pouring rain outside and we weren't in the mood to go searching for another breakfast place while getting soaked... More

When you are used to living in a country (Scotland) that has a great breakfast tradition a continental breakfast is a little boring! This restaurant was ok - nice granola/ good pastries and breads with jam. Now we know what to expect we know what to order next time
