Brought three of my grandchildren for breakfast. With tip the bill was $65.00! They said they didn't have kids menus. They could order just one pancake if they want (at regular price of course). I've had full course dinners with them for less.

Great breakfast. Imaginative take on ordinary breakfast fare. Sweet potato hash, grilled corn bread, pumpkin crepes, unique quiche specials, chorizo sausage thrown in various dishes, etc. The staff was very nice and accommodating. Will definitely be back next R.I. visit.
