We had breakfast here before heading home from our weekend jaunt! The location was cozy, with good service and delicious food! They even have a doggie menu for us dog lovers that want to feed their buddies while eating a leisurely breakfast!

We had a great breakfast at Codys, lovely food and good service. Very busy while we were there but waiters were organised and busy.

If you plan ahead for parking and get there early, it is worth it. My meal was awesome and my service was really good. I would go back and I would recommend it.
