I popped in here on my way through Kingston after a business meeting. I was pleasantly surprised by the warm and friendly atmosphere when I walked in and immediately wished I'd discovered it earlier in the week. I ordered custom drinks from Corey called Rita's Navel and a pomegranate gin sour. They were delicious and very original. The gentleman beside... More

A very good selection, including eggs, pancakes, bacon, sausage, home fries, etc., including orange juice and coffee. Good service. Gratis parking, which is a big plus in downtown Kingston.

I usually try to find a good thing to say and in this case it was the waiter. He was a very nice guy but a horrible waiter. We were seated, 4 adults, 2 children and a baby. We asked for high chair and he said right away. Over half an hour and we asked again, another 15 min. Finally... More

Average breakfast fare with hot items such as eggs, bacon, sausage and French toast/pancakes. Lots of breads and pastries, although no choices for gluten free diets. Modest fruit, yogurt choices but sufficient for the day.

We got a package at the Holiday Inn that included the breakfast buffet. It was good. Not a lot of variety. They had cereals, muffins and the usual stuff. One type of eggs, feta and tomato scrambled, so if you don't like that you're out of luck. Bacon and breakfast sausage, French toast and I think they had pancakes. Not... More

I have been here twice and both times the food and service were great. I found the retardant to be very baby friendly. If you are a hotel guest your kids eat free otherwise it's a very small $5 for a drink main course and dessert for kids. I love the view from the patio .

Decided to have a drink on the beautiful patio by the water. There were 2 tables (couples) when we arrived but they left within 5 mins of our arrival. That left JUST US on the patio (one patron inside). We ordered our drinks and after TWENTY+ minutes and TWO waitresses, we still did not have our drinks (no food ordered).... More
