This was recommended by locals and we were more than delighted. We came for breakfast. It has the best pancakes you will ever have. Special recipe of owners grandmother. Great smoked trout and pepper bacon sides. We will return for lunch and/or dinner soon.

This place is rated as one of the 10 best Washington restaurants not in Seattle, and I don't get it. It's no different from hundreds, if not thousands, of others. Server was friendly and helpful, but the food was nothing to write home about. I...More

The restaurant is noisy and the tables are VERY close together. It is great for 2-4 people but not great for larger parties. Also gets quite warm due to close seating. Food so far has been pretty good.
Is Thursday still Sushi day?
