This is a cute restaurant with a great breakfast. I had the special - a crab, asparagus, and swiss omelet. Friendly staff and reasonably priced.

The food here was pretty good. It was on the expensive side, but you do get a lot of food. Might be worth it to split a meal and order an extra biscuit if you need it.

Took a chance and stopped in for breakfast. Nice place, friendly staff. We has the Hangover breakfast which is a dish with potatoes with cheese bacon and eggs on top. It was filling and delicious.
