Went to breakfast after spending a night at the High Country Inn, attached to this restaurant (receive 10% off of meals if you are staying there). Excellant comfort food, omelettes with an Italian flair and great coffee.

We dine in Ticino, on a spring break holiday with my family. It was 5 of us and we ordered different dishes. Every one of them was fantastic including desserts. The service was excellent. We most definitely will return and I highly recommend this restaurant.

We were staying at the adjacent High Country Inn and needed late night dessert. We stopped in and ordered some desserts to go, the handmade ice cream and tiramisu. Very quick and very friendly service. The desserts hit the spot :)
