Great cafe for breakfast and lunch. Fast service and nice selection of brunch cocktails. Had a veggie omelette that was very good. Pancakes overflow your plate.

Stopped in for a nice breakfast, must have beat the rush because we only had to wait 10mins. Food was fast and delicious! Best cinnamon roll I’ve ever had. Wait staff very friendly.
