Great quaint little shop and the food was excellent. Greek omelet was purest and coffee perfect. Service very friendly and warm without being intrusive or overbearing. Prices are very reasonable

If you love breakfast, this is the place to go. They offer a wide variety of dishes and very unique pancake combos. I had the cranberry walnut and they were delicious. My wife had seasonal pumpkin pancakes with pumpkin syrup.
