This place has great food prepared to order with fresh ingredients and everything looks great when it arrives hot to your table. But the Mimosas are The BEST!!! They make them with fresh squeezed orange juice all pulpy and delicious! Yummmm

What an amazing breakfast/lunch spot! The Gourmet Grilled Brie Sandwich melted in my mouth and my husband ordered the delicious Garden Tofu Scramble.

This place is where the locals know where to go. You cannot get a bad salad here. Everything they make at either location is so good.

It's a little tucked away, well worth seeking out. DH had the bangers & eggs special, I had their South Pine scramble, and both were fabulous. Large portions, and I feel we got our moneys' worth.

Stopped in for breakfast on St Patrick day and had two of the specials, Baileys coffee with whipped cream and cinnamon along with green apple french toast which was green apple slices cooked in butter on french toast, strawberry slices and almond slices. The french toast was exceptional. It almost didn't need any maple syrup.
