The place is a hubbub of activity and can have lines! Why? The food is good! I especially enjoy the Belgian Waffle! A chef is making to order omelets and there is a great buffet as well. Certainly worth a bit of a wait!

We had a nice breakfast here. My cousin had the buffet and I had a Waffle. We both enjoyed it very much. It is not inexpensive but the food was good.

I ate breakfast here several times while attending a meeting in the area. The meals were nicely prepared and the service was welcoming and prompt. On Sunday breakfast is a buffet rather than a la carte. A line of cooks prepared omelets and other dishes...More
