After waiting fifteen minutes for my waiter to finally take my order (and neglecting to refill my empty coffee cup...filled by the hostess), I enjoyed one of the few options on 'very limited' breakfast menu. However, if you are an omelet lover (I am not)...there...More

HI there, Heading to a sharks game with the family. Is there a kids menu here? Would like to eat some good food, but don't want to spend a fortune on a dish the 3 year old won't finish, especially since it won't make sense to bring the leftovers home. Thanks!
