Had breakfast of pancakes and fruit. I was disappointed by the small size of the two pancakes. They tasted OK but were nothing special they were covered with finely diced fruit. The coffee was good but was served in a small cup. My wife enjoyed her granola with yogurt and fruit. The service was good and pleasant.

Shared plate of chicken falafel. Came with salad and red cabbage slaw. Ordered extra piece of pita and it fed two of us. Hummus was delicious . Nice waiters.

Great service and great brunch. Delicious teas and juices, but the star was the pita omelet. Wonderful price and quality.
