Breakfast and Brunch definitely have to be my favorite meals to enjoy when dining out. I really had high expectations for this place because of the great reviews it has gotten. I got to taste both of their eggs benedicts and they were truly mediocre. Definitely not the kind of place that I'd stand 45mins waiting on a table for.... More
