and what a pizza it is!!! Flat bread topped with peppers, onions, tomatoes, bacon, scrambled eggs and cheese. A great way to start your day. Service was great and atmosphere was funky. This is a not to be missed place.

She asked us if we wanted anything else to... More

Great year-round for breakfast and lunch. New quiche specials everyday. Staff could not be more friendly or accomodating. Locals love it. Highly recommend.

Again, a great food experience! The chicken salad wrap with cranberries is one of my favorites. My daughter had another of my favorites the French Toast! She loved it! Never a disappointing meal here! And the service is fast and thoroughly attentive to your needs! When you're here, don't miss the experience!
