Good portions. Staff was super attentive. Not a lot of seating but people move in and out quickly. Omelette and crepes were great.

My wife and I arrived during the relative calm between breakfast and lunch. We noted on the menu insert that numerous favorably priced breakfast specials are offered until 11AM that we missed by 15 minutes. Undeterred we both decided on ordering breakfast with my better...More
