Great food and service in a lovely, bright setting reminiscent of New Orleans. Highly recommend the Eggs Benedict! Can't go wrong with this place - food, service, value all spot on!

Breakfast menu had so many selections it was hard to choose. Both mornings, not only did we have great service but the breakfast food was delicious!

We had breakfast here both mornings. The service was very good. We both had scrambled eggs which were perfectly scrambled and piping hot when served. The staff in the restaurant were friendly and cheerful!

I believe it is a brunch buffet. They had several stations and items warming with chaffing stations. We didn't eat the buffet but had other meals like made to order breakfast. Food was all very good. 😊
