Good wide choice of all things American breakfast. I fancied an omelette with chillies in it so ordered a chilli omelette. What I didn't realise that it would be an omelette filled with chilli meat sauce. Nonetheless it was really good. Busy, friendly, quick, tasty.

That's something that I would never look for, they might do a miniature facsimile like a langoustine. Lots of great stuff there and the board always has specials.
