Went for brunch on NewYears day. There was a 35 minute wait to be seated and we waited 30 for the food to arrive. This is my only visit so I cannot judge if that day was exceptionally crowded. Perhaps so. Server was very nice....More

Amazing breakfast menu. We had eggs Benedict and French toast. A lot of food for little money, compared to other breakfast places in the area. Lunch begins at 11.
