The service was great, was asked to wait 5 minutes for my lunch and got it in 2 minutes. Both sisters were helpful and made sure I was comfortable and enjoyed my stay. Nice cappuccino as well, I must definitely visit again.

Stopped in for breakfast and we were not disappointed. We had the breakfast sandwich and the omelet. Coffee was good, no free refills! Setting outside was like a small zoo. Chickens and cats wandering around the area. Our server was Marie, shy but very attentive.
