I had the oatmeal with brown sugar, cream and raisins. Yummy. My husband had a ham & cheese omelet that came with toast and fried potatoes. Double yummy. Our portions were huge and delicious. Service was fast and everyone in the restaurant was friendly.

The style and presentation are there. The food is good and fresh. The outdoor coffee is a great touch (though $2/cup is steep for coffee while you wait).The missing ingredient is a lot of taste. There is definitely some there, but there is a risk...More
