Went here by default as the Thai place was closed and was very pleased! Extremely generous portions, great selections of sides including salads. The service was a bit slow but they were extremely busy.

Cool little place, nooks and crannies to sit in, including a patio. Breakfast was good, liked the seasoning on the potatoes (home fries style), andoule sausage was a surprise. Service was great, prompt and coffee hot and mellow.
