Prices are extremely high for what you get and they have HUGE upcharges for everything— substitutions end up being add on charges. This place used to be so good — but over the last few years it's gone downhill and the prices have gone up....More

Our server was lovely and prompt. The French toast almondine was spectacular. The pancakes were delicious and HUGE. The place was clean, inviting, and small (but not cramped). Highly recommended!
