Very average food. Nothing exciting or particularly interesting. FOod was bland. Service slow. Wouldn't go out of my way to go there again.

It was a busy Saturday morning in August and the place was busy. But they still founds us a table in 10 mins and service was quick and friendly. We both enjoyed our breakfasts. Definitely will go back.
