I had breakfast at the restaurant yesterday. A long story short...the service was great, the food good, BUT.... you pay for it. The price for the coffee, is the only item that is comparable to other restaurants. Will I visit them again...yes.

This busy eatery has a warm atmosphere and was very busy and it can be over-full at times. We were served quickly and politely and the menu was edgy, unique, but slightly over-priced. Our gingerbread snack was delicious and the presentation of food generally is...More
