Interesting little place...peacocks great you at the door. The food was flavorful and presented well. I had a burrito that was great. It isn't fancy on the outside or inside but it has a local hangout vibe. I would recommend this place.

Besides arriving and seeing beautiful peacocks everywhere, the inside was just as cool. Walked inside, and had to take in the antique cook stoves, wood burning stoves, and all of the little touches that make you feel right at home. The coffee was wonderful, breakfast...More

I don't know about their menu tomorrow. You can probably call them early and see. Google their number. You'll probably want reservations anyway....
