This is a standout restaurant on Lincoln Rd. with terrific outside seating for fun people watching! The fare is well prepared and it can get busy so be patient. This is not the cheapest alternative but all our breakfasts were tasty for 3 days in a row. Try the cushion couch seats if you can get one.

Excellent filet mignon on Alfredo with sautéed mushrooms. Highly recommend. I would've shown you a picture, but as you can see, I polished my plate! Good wine good food good service. Miguel gave us excellent service.
