A nice change from eggs, hash brown, bacon routine for breakfast. The Toasted Paris Ham and Gruyere Croissant was delightful. This menu item was not cooked in grease, therefore, not heavy as bacon or sausage can be. Don’t get me wrong, I love a big...More

Beautiful, not overdone, not pretentious, relaxing. Great coffee. The open faced sandwiches were good but next time I'll try something different. The Belgian waffles were amazing, even without toppings. The staff was nice and accommodating with our 16 mo daughter. We'll definitely be back.More
