We had the good fortune of having some of our Eastern European affiliates drop in for visit and review of our plans. This was a great place to start the morning. Freindly people and very nice preprations.

Stopped here for breakfast to get a break from the hotel continental breakfast. Lots of healthy options. Everything we had was very good. A little on the pricey side but the food and the service were outstanding. Will definitely come back when in the area.

Enjoyed a healthy option of crepes with fresh fruits. There is a wide variety of healthy and hearty. My friend's gravy on the omelette was fun and yummy.

no reservations. But they do have an app called "no wait" that is very helpful to put yourself on the list and see how long the wait is.
