Found a nice little gem with the help of Trip Advisor Contributions... we really enjoyed the visit this morning. I recommend the Poppers... so good and unique. Hubby got a cinnamon roll which he said needs to be shared. Will come again in the future.

The food was great, the staff very attentive and caring. We were seated immediately on a busy Sunday morning. The restaurant is very small, so our seats were in an area below the stairs, but we were hungry, and comfortable, so we didn't really mind....More
