Prompt service, good portions, tasty food. A great place for breakfast. There is a patio too, it's close to the road but you can watch the world go by.

We went here for a quick Saturday brunch. Service was good and quick and the food was as expected - quite good with larger portions. It was not busy when we there but know that we have seen lineups on weekends at peek times.
