This is a solid choice. We had some enjoyable food, though nothing was extremely memorable. The wine list is a disgrace though, with only a single white wine on the menu.

Worst breakfast ever! Food is bland, it looks like the cooks don't know what's a salt shaker. Service is terrible. Omelettes with no cheese. How can people say good is great in this terrible place? They should have no taste. Avoid if possible

We had drinks and apps and relaxed which later became a lot of laughter and celebration of a birthday. The servers were helpful, quick w/service, and polite. The next day we had breakfast there and it was good. Good prices as well.

We ate outside several times. We never tried inside, but we will one of these days. One of the things that drew us to this restaurant is that the waiters who serve the outside tables all stand at attention nearby, where everyone walks by on...More

Had a great breakfast at the outdoor sidewalk dining area. Chose this place because we wanted to sit outside on a beautiful morning and watch the activity of the city. The huevos rancheros were very good. The pancakes and french toast were also very good....More
