Delicious! Service is really slow but the food is exceptional. If you're in a hurry this isn't the place. Want a good meal with plenty of time? Go here!

We ate late so there was just one person serving all of tables. It was a little slow at first but the food was good

We've eaten here many times. Of late, it's only been for breakfast for whatever reason. The food is good, the portions are generous and the cost is reasonable. The atmosphere is congenial.
