The bistro is no larger than a studio apartment, with things and paintings all over, creating a rather crowded atmosphere. It is also extremely noisy. The wait, which can at times snake out the door onto Main Street can be long. Ours was 18 minutes, then we ordered breakfast. Another 15 minute wait. The waitstaff is harried, and busy bussing...

My brother took me and wife here. Great breakfast eggs Benedict and omelette were great. Be prepared to wait if you go on a weekend though we went 9:30 on a Sunday morning and had a half hour wait by the time we sat there was a forty five minute wait. Food was great and so was service. Must visit... More

My friend and I decided to try this place on a whim, small little restaurant that was packed at three in the afternoon, I received a pasta and shrimp bowl that was to die for, and my friend had the chili which she loved. I tried her guacamole dip to see, because I have never liked guacamole before, well this... More

A great little place to grab a hearty breakfast before a day of hiking / climbing, etc. On weekend mornings it can get packed so either go early or be prepared to wait to get a seat. Service is quick / attentive and the food is reasonably priced for the area.

The food here was very reasonably priced, hearty and excellent. My entree came with home baked bread which was great! Not much on looks, but a bustling, efficient atmosphere.

Small place for breakfast and/or lunch with usually a wait to get in but worth it. Food is well prepared and good service. Always specials that we like to try.
