This is a trip back in time with great food and great service. I went for breakfast and didn't need to refuel until dinner. They also have a walk up window for coffee and pastries if you don't want a full breakfast.

Four of us made the mistake of coming in for a late breakfast when we were all hungry. The menu had so many great options that we over-ordered and ate family style. Everything was delicious. The portions are generous. The staff is friendly and prompt....More
