Check out happy hour at this restaurant. We ordered some drinks which were great and had free access to a happy hour type buffet. It hit the spot after a long day.

Make sure your whole party is there or they won't put you the waiting list. The eggs benedicts were amazing. My buddy had the Caribbean French toast and that was amazing also. The wait for the food takes longer than usual but its worth it.

Ambience is lively, wall art is attractive, service is good, and food is awesome! I wish they had more of a coffee variance, nonetheless, this place is a "got to go to" spot!

The sandwich and quesadilla menus are solid, too, but the breakfast really stands out. Fantastic migas, and an excellent (and sizeable) carafe of mimosas for only $14!!
