Fabrizo and Jessica are the nicest people to serve you while you enjoy your time having breakfast or lunch. The selection of meals are both unique and prepared with love. Excellent service. Excellent presentation, taste, variety and value.

I had the oatmeal with brown sugar, cream and raisins. Yummy. My husband had a ham & cheese omelet that came with toast and fried potatoes. Double yummy. Our portions were huge and delicious. Service was fast and everyone in the restaurant was friendly.
