Had the steak benedict special and it was very good. The sides of potatoes and fruit were all also super tasty. Portion sizes were HUGE. Share a plate.

Food is amazing and beautifully prepared. The dessert case will knock your socks off; if you can’t go for dinner, stop in for coffee and dessert, it’s decadent!
