We had a fabulous brunch here. Best brunch I’ve had in ages. I had the pancakes stack with plenty of fresh fruit and maple syrup. Good service, clean restaurant, great coffee and good choice of food. Kept me going all day .

Kai is such a gem. Even with their reduced menu (a Covid-19 measure), there's a good variety of food. We ordered the eggs benedict, American pancakes with cheese bacon and eggs, and American pancakes with avocado, smoked salmon and lemon crème fraîche. Everything was absolutely...More
