Breakfast was great, friend had egg white omelet, I had Sir Dugan frittata. Both were great tasting and hot. Food is always fresh and very good. Service was excellent, one of the best waiters I've had there. Will be back :)

Went in with my wife and her brother recently. Love the menu here because she's a breakfast person, I'm a lunch person and we both had plenty of options to choose from. Seasonal menu changed from last time we were in but still great. Very...More

The people that run this restaurant are very friendly and accommodating. The offerings are very good and there is something for everyone to enjoy. Nice spot for a lunch with friends. Great chicken and wild rice soup too.

Everything here is delightful. Good service and wonderful food. A great neighborhood meeting place. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 star is that I have a hard time hearing in there. The accoustics aren't very good and it's usually very loud.

We actually picked up this place because it had good reviews on TripAdvisor and went there on Saturday for breakfast. We were kind of lucky, because we got a table immediately and after we sat down the line started forming in front of the entrance...More
