we went for breakfast, and we were able to sit outside and observe the airplanes, which was cool. Food was good, but not hot as it was a buffet. Pastries were not homemade, but store bought, which was disappointing. Overall, it was good though

Nice location! Terrible food, and worse service! We have been here many times, with previous owners, and totally enjoyed the food and excellent service.

Bright room, comfy seats and the food was very good. The main door was locked when we arrived but went in a side door - was missed unlocking it. Not a lot of staff. Clean washrooms.

Totally based on my first impression, I found the restaurant on the casual side, spacious interior. Food selection was very common, non- appealing. Staff friendly but it lack atmosphere and a more gourmet menu.
