The brunch menu is very eclectic (some Mexican-influenced items, others seemingly more French, plus the standards). I had the Savory Crepes and my friend had Eggs Carolyn. All was delicious! The dining rooms are smallish and lovely without being the least bit stuffy or formal....More

We had a couple of the specials including Eggs Benedict with soft-shell crab instead of ham, and squash-flower with pico de gallo, etc. Excellent food.

If you haven't been here, or if it's been awhile, come! Delicious entrees. Great choices. Our waiter, John, was pleasant, polite, attentive. Great ambiance. New rooms that are lovely. Great music. Amazing bartender with old and new favorites. An overall delightful experience. Visit soon!
