Great selection of food for every member. I had the nest frittata, delicious. My daughter had Mac and cheese. Go early and put your name in the list and then walk around to the shops. Summer heat was hell to wait outside. Enjoy.

The atmosphere is great. The waiters make sure you are taken care of and do a great job at refilling your coffee. Typical brunch menu and very busy.
