Little neighborhood restaurant, nicely decorated, big mirrors on the wall which brings a lot of light. The staff is friendly and welcoming. The food is tasty and fresh. The eggs Benedict are delicious.

Chef always provides food and drinks for city dwellers and foodies. Menu is always changing to your own level of experience. Everything on the menu is exceptional. Service is great.
