The food is excellent with good sized portions. The wait can be long at times however, it is so worth it. Highly recommend their breakfast foods.

Be prepared to wait as this is a small restaurant. Worth it though. A friend took me and we enjoyed specialty sandwiches and a delicious slice of carmelized French toast. Be delighted with eclectic décor in the rooms, including the bathrooms.

A bit of a wait, but it was lunchtime after all. And we were able to check out the antique shop next door (which is pretty cool, by the way). Also checked out all the flowers and trees in the yard. AND the wait was...More

This was the best breakfast I have ever had at any restaurant! The food was immaculate. The service was top notch. Everything was seasoned and cooked to perfection. This restaurant stays packed all day but the 45 minutes to an hour wait is definitely worth...More
