Really good breakfast food. The stuffed Hashed Browns were really good. Large food portions, steaming hot coffee, and very busy on weekends it appears with a mix of locals and tourists. Parking down a side street is pretty easy.

Three of us went for dinner. The small plates were outstanding. The menu is diverse. Each plate was so delicious. A table top buffet of foods and flavors. Very fun. The service was excellent.

We waited 15 minutes before they came... More
