I have no doubt you will be extremely satisfied if you choose to eat here. The coffee was excellent- our cups never empty. Breakfast for four was top notch. Great quality, beautiful presentation, wonderful service, spotless, nice cozy place.

Being a frequent customer, breakfast was again excellent this morning. My favorite is the beer braised corn beef hash and two poached eggs. The service is always great and I never wait long for a table. I highly recommend this place.
