This cafe was a couple of minutes walk from our hotel and we went there twice for breakfast. A good breakfast and friendly efficient service.

The sweet potato scramble was fabulous. They were so accommodating and made mine with tempeh instead of sausage and bacon, plus sour cream on the side, delicious. The bloody marys really hit the spot too. And there was no wait to be seated!

Enjoyed the food, nice portions and good menu options. The service was very slow for some reason. Took way too long to get our breakfast for 4. Maybe it was the server, maybe the kitchen, but seemed like our order got lost in the morning...More

I believe so. For instance they use croutons made out of grits for their salads. I had a friend with Celiacs visit me here, and we found that it's pretty easy to find gluten free options in most restaraunts. There is a... More
