Great place to visit after my yoga class. Take-out part of the restaurant serves pizza, salads and desserts. Lots of outdoor seating and right on 4th street with lots of fun shops.

Tried to eat here on Sunday at 9am, as Labour weekend very busy. Couldn't wait an hour for a table so had waffles from take out Bette next door. Good waffle with strawberry on top. Shame I didn't get the full breakfast.

If you're looking for an old-fashioned diner that works at a modern pace, this is the place to be. The design is exactly like a classic diner - tiled floors and 50's style jukeboxes and the food is incredible and typically American. It gets really...More

We had small children with us and decided to try to go on a Sunday. We had to wait about 1 hour for the table. I ordered the Brandy Apple souffle pancake. It was very good. Hubby got the Maryland breakfast which was also good....More
