Try the Green Mountain for breakfast. Awesome. Coffees were excellent. On road parking but no trouble finding a spot this Sunday morning.

Homemade hollandaise sauce was great. We enjoyed our breakfast. The portions vs. prices were reasonable. Good coffee and great customer service. The food was cooked well. I recommend this cafe.
