We ate here on a rainy Saturday and the restaurant was half full. It took a while to get our food, but it was fresh and reasonably priced. A nice local spot!

Ecclectic menu serving fresh foods. Homemade hollandaise sauce for the eggs benedict. Wonderfully quirky dining room and excellent service.

I went here on a Monday afternoon and the place was very busy, I took that as a good sign. The staff was a little overwhelmed but were very friendly and we were seated right away and didn't have to wait long for our food. The Granny Salad with smoked salmon on top was delicious and it was very reasonable.... More

This is an excellent coffee shop with free wifi and great coffee. And their breakfasts have been improving over the years. I can't say enough about their Eggs Benedict - perfectly cooked eggs and an outstanding hollandaise sauce. They know how to cook based brown potatoes as well. On one of my visits, I found that they had overtoasted the... More

I have eaten brunch, lunch and dinner here. Always a fun, enjoyable meal shared with others. Service can be slow when the place is full but the wait passes by when sharing a conversation and a Latte.

Great breakfast, very cute place. My latte was great and so was my frittata. Everyone else's looked delicious as well. Our server was new and very busy, but the manager or owner was helping and came around often. Overall this was a wonderful breakfast experience! Thanks

My mom found this place because she is down here all the time. We both had a fantastic meal and always recommend this place to others. They have a great breakfast variety to choose from. I always love when a restaurant offers a side salad instead of potatoes!

We've eaten here several times recently and never been disappointed. Six of us had brunch/lunch items recently which ranged from omelettes to smoked salmon BLTs: all were delicious. There espresso coffee drinks are also excellent. The place is quaint, and the device is pleasant and efficient.

Thank Frank M
