We ordered the bacon & egg breakfast with toast $12.50 and Maha big breakfast $21 sausage, bacon mushroom, tomato,egg and toast. Food was good with quick service. Seating inside approximately 6 tables and two outside tables with street view. Across the street is child playground and river walk path with public toilets.
