We hit this place up for something quick to drink. Tea/coffee was good, fairly straight forward, and easy. A little pricey for the two drinks ($6.00), but they were fast and efficient. Good, solid recommend.

Home cooked food. Large portions. Although you can find healthy options, this is really a place where you can eat delicious waffle creations, egg combinations and lunchtime specials. Dependable place to eat breakfast or lunch.

Four of us had lunch here as we all liked what we had. The Honeyberry salad was especially good. The spinach and feta omelette was ordered made with just 2 eggs and was a perfect size, also served with fresh fruit that was both ripe and tasty. It's a nice restaurant and we will return.
