Great food along with pleasant service. Glad I did not take the negative reviews to heart. Will surely go back. The website says they take reservations but they don't. They are open for breakfast and lunch only.

A cute little cafe near the Fox Chapel area in Pittsburgh serving some delicious eggs and French toast. Complimentary mimosas (ok, they're mostly orange juice) and very attentive service. Owner also runs Cee Cee's down the street.
