Breakfast was very good, loved the coffee. Prices are fair for the area. Great little area outside to have breakfast and people watch. We'll come back.

Good quick lunch of a Reuben sandwich and french fries. Sat at a little counter looking out onto the sidewalk and read the paper. Nice friendly lunch on a hot day.
