Best place for brunch. Eggs benny is the bomb! You can't go wrong with any item on the menu. Get there early to get a table!

Fast service. Delicious food cooked exactly as I asked. The homemade jam and ketchup are delicious!! We sat outside on their bistro-like patio and enjoyed a beautiful sunny morning.

Popped in for brunch and grabbed a stool seat facing the sidewalk. Service was great and the selection of food was good. Seat at the window was a nice spot to people-watch.

We dropped by this little cafe because we saw that tripadvisor had good reviews. We weren't disappointed. Friendly, relaxed and efficient staff. We were advised that there might be a bit of a wait when we came into the cafe - as there were two...More

Stopped in with a large group of 10 people for breakfast. This is a smaller restaurant. There wasn't enough indoor seating for our group, but it was a beautiful day outside. Sat in the wonderful outdoor patio. Service was efficient, food arrived promptly. The breakfast...More
