The deconstructed lobster roll Benedict was amazing! Service was good and food was hot and tasty. There can be a wait, but there is a funky little coffee shop just a few doors away. Worth the wait.

My children and I went to the Bongo Room for breakfast, and we were not dissapointed. The place is very popular On weekends. The menu offers great variations, and portions are really large - and of good quality.

Great Sunday brunch. Fantastic omelettes and stack of pancakes. Not for the faint hearted - very generous portions. Friendly staff. Be prepared to queue - very popular place but food well worth the short wait.
