Can't stop won't stop going here for lobster benedict and a bottle of good white wine on Sundays! The rest of the brunch menu looks amazing but I can't skip my regular and favourite benny order with a soup or salad!

Like always, this place has good food, nice environment, and friendly staff. You can always count on having a good meal here when you need a meal. But we do not remember any very exciting innovative dishes here.
