We do love our eggs and thank God we found this amazing little place. You need to try their classic breakfast ciabatta with avocado. Cappuccino is also great. It's totally affordable. Staff is very welcoming and we loved the music selection too. Just a gem!

The food themselves are fairly good. The downside of eating here is that it really takes long time before food is ready

Five of us enjoyed a nice Mother's Day breakfast. All was good and the place is adorable. The only negative was too much gravy on the chicken and waffles.

I am coming to your restaurant on Sunday for brunch. Given some of the not-so-flattering reviews I've read here regarding being rushed - do you suggest I go elsewhere? I'm meeting a friend and we plan on catching up and having a nice midday meal without the hassle of being rushed. Please advise - thanks.
