Went here for brunch on a Friday morning, and didn't have a hard time getting a table, though the place was definitely hopping. The service was excellent-- relaxed and happy is how I'd describe the atmosphere. The food was very good-- not ginormous plates, but...More

Went on a Sunday morning. Busy but not mobbed - still summer. Food is very good and plenty for the price. Service is good. Food can come out on the slow side. Atmosphere on a sunny day is really great.
