Our first time here and loved it! Small inside, so you might have to wait a few.........Lots of irish faces......nice people.......great menu with wicked cheap prices. Homemade corned beef hash, and irish soda bread toast! Definately worth the wait! Delisious breakfast!

I've eaten here quite a few times. It's a great spot to meet a friend for breakfast. It's small and very popular. I think I've had to wait in line every time I've come here. The food is good and prices are reasonable.
