Fast service, charming cozy restaurant, good food selection, delicious food and friendly staff. We ordered the pancakes, sausage, bacon, veggie omelette (came with potatoes and toast) and a cup of fruit. All with coffee. Really enjoyed it and highly recommend.

Certainly not my first visit, just discovered the Wet Hen card that has been available, but I wasn't paying attention! Your food and service are fantastic, and I love bringing/meeting my friends there whenever possible! Keep up the good, friendly atmosphere you have!
