The breakfast menu is simple but sufficient choice whether you want something hot or cold. The sourdough toast was EPIC, served with PB and tasty homemade jam. The bacon scrambowl was also great. Definitely pop in if you’re staying in the area!

The drinks are good. The food is good. The service is good. Parking is a bit of a nightmare, though. But I'm giving The Power and the Glory 5 out of 5 for another reason: My (now) husband and I had our first date here....More
