Good food and great coffee are on offer here, besides craft brews. Linger over a range of healthy (and less healthy) breakfast choices, fresh juices and great cappucino! Hosts like Sydney Mbatha will chase away your jetlag with friendly, efficient service.More

Thanks for the kind words! We're proud of all our food offerings - we're biased, but we think we make the best Eggs Benedict at ORTIA (and for miles around too!). We hope to see you again soon!

Very mediocre place with mediocre beers. The food is nothing to write home about, the beers all taste the same. The IPA has no bitterness flavor profile it could just as well be a blonde ale.
