Scrambled eggs as good as I remember, sausage was surprisingly juicy and cappuccino was smooth. We also had mochas that were delicious! Excellent proportion of coffee and cocoa. SGC is unpretentious and reliable, and we're so sad that Gene's decided to close.

But in the quest for a great brunch place.. not more than average choice. Atmosphere was nice, staff was super friendly, coffee was great.. but food was unfortunately just average.

Place was quiet and quite hidden. Food was of a good portion size. Waiters were friendly and welcoming. Overall good place for a simple fuss free brunch.
