Walking the dog the Saveur gave a treat to reward the effort. Coffee and muffin and atmosphere was perfect and the dog enjoyed it as well.

Very friendly when you go in. They seat you but you have to wait for about 10 minutes before they come back to take your orders. They seemed more interested in the clients sitting outside.

We saw this restaurant while navigating around the town & thought it was a great location. We reserved but didn’t need to on a Monday evening. The food was good but the kids thought that scrambled eggs for dinner on the kids menu was hilarious!...More
