Visited for lunch today. We had to wait for a little while, until a table was available, but it was worth it. The service was prompt for a busy Saturday and the waffles were delicious as always. I will be visiting again.

Yes you can if you eat/stay in the patio area. The dogs need to be on a short leash and stay off the tables & chairs. The restaurant are happy to provide a dog bowl with water.
