I called in for breakfast after it had been recommended. The bacon and eggs with hash was large and came as ordered so if you're hungry and want to experience a good dinner meal try here

Good breakfast. Within walking distance from the Ravel hotel if you don’t mind working up hunger. Just had breakfast. The walk back we had to protect some ducks trying to cross the street with their babies. So cool.

It is right next to the subway station, best to take the 7, though there is limited street parking
