My husband, two friends and I had breakfast here on Sunday. There was a long wait, notwithstanding available tables. When we were finally sat, we had to repeatedly request items from our waitress that were missing from our order. When the food arrived, it had obviously been sitting under the heating lamps for some time and none of it was... More

Went there with my husband & his friend for brunch. The food was excellent the price a little bit higher than expected especially since the serving size was so small.

At breakfast there. It was good and the staff was friendly. Food came out a little slow, but it was worth the wait
