Went for breakfast. Was a weekend and busy but did not have to wait too long to be seated. Small dining room and tables were pretty close together, thus not very private. The food was great and cooked perfectly. Nice presentation with tablecloths and a...More

We were recommended to try this place primarily for the interest of getting to see the pastry chefs creating treats behind the giant picture window. However, there are only three tables by the window, so if you are interested in getting photos or getting an...More
