We had an early lunch/breakfast on morning. The service was very good. The menu selection included breakfast and lunch items. I had a breakfast egg dish with chorizo. The food was very good. We will eat here again when we return.

It was a Sunday so we were simply glad to get a table. My smoked salmon Benedict was so yummy that I nearly licked my plate. Service very slow but friendly.

I would call them to make sure, but I don't think so. It's a breakfast place. Who makes reservations for breakfast? Go there anyway, the food is great.
