An amazing variety of well prepared classics. Our first meal was with a group of 14 without reservations; we were wonderfully accommodated. The prices were reasonable and the service good.

Burgers good. Chicken Slavaki was not cooked enough. No attempt made for adjustment by wait staff. Would not go again.

The place is a hubbub of activity and can have lines! Why? The food is good! I especially enjoy the Belgian Waffle! A chef is making to order omelets and there is a great buffet as well. Certainly worth a bit of a wait!
