Stopped by for a breakfast — had the pancakes — and also for a lunch — had the grilled cheese. Both meals were great! The coffee and scones were also excellent! Definitely recommend.

Great spot for good wholesome food. I had the full Irish breakfast which was easily big enough for two. Others had delicious French toast with caramel and bruschetta. All very good ....great coffee and fresh squeezed juice.

This is a very busy and popular venue, and I am not surprised. The members of the staff are very pleasant. I was there with two other people. We were seated very quickly and served quickly.
