I found myself in this area at lunch-time and made what turned out to be a mistake. Yes, I went in for lunch. Food was poor and service was even worse. When I shared my experience with the "manager," she told me that I should...More

I thought they were serving breakfast all day but they are not. That's ok, I went for their 1st avenue burger and oh my god, it was amazing! Caramelized onions, over easy fried egg and delicious beef! They really know how to make a burger!...More

We waited for about 30 min to get seated, but the wait was worth it. Breakfast offered unusual dishes, plus the standard. Service was efficient, super friendly AND attentive! We have been here often and never had a disappointing meal.
