Great service, good coffee and an interesting mix of a variety of different kinds of breakfast. Really good French toast and the eggs are fresh and cooked perfectly.

By comparison to the other 'mid-range' restaurants we frequented on this trip, this was the best. Manley, our waiter, was fast, friendly and helpful. He definitely made the experience. I had a seared scallop salad with mandarin orange dressing and highly recommend it. A preschooler...More

The breakfast here is great (huge omelette's, and the stack of pancakes are the size of the plate). We also dine for lunch and have the burgers which are the best in the area.

Amazing bagels. Line moves fast - don't let it deter you. Support local businesses. These guys had great customer service. Egg and cheese was yummy too. Better than Dunkin.

We are glad you loved your bagel, but unfortunately we don't sell them here. I think you were probably at Lighthouse Bagels. They do have a great bagel over there! Thanks for supporting local businesses!
