This little place is open for breakfast and lunch only. The food is excellent; the restaurant is charming, and the service is first rate.

Great service; cozy cafe with wonderful selection. I had the corned beef hash made to order which was wonderful with a hint of rosemary. Buddy had eggs Benedict which was also exceptional. Place to go for relaxing and filling breakfast.
