Elegant dining in this hidden gem. Great food. 5 of us all had something different and everything was great. Sunday brunch with Mimosas is worth it.

Only open on sundays for breakfast. Small menu but all choices looked excellent. I had the spicy skillet which was excellent. 2 others enjoyed the pulled pork eggs Benedict. The quiche and veggie omelette were also excellent. Free mimosa for each person. Highly recommend!
