Really good for breakfast. Good for lunch too. I'm picky about my scrambled eggs and they are usually perfect here. They have lots of unusual items also... not just the usual bacon and eggs.

This is a long established well known and respected restaurant always full and filled with fresh and delicious breakfast items. I particularly love the avocado toast that is more than a generous portion for the price. A fund place to meet and greet.
