My wife and I stopped in for Brunch on a Monday. Food was very good and prices were reasonable. Small and quaint, but very tasty. They only accept cash but they do have an ATM inside.

Tucked away on South Street, Ants Pants is a local favorite. The Australian owner and the staff truly appeared to be enjoying what they do which is to prepare and serve dishes a cut above most small cafes. My order of Eggs Benedict was not...More
