We were turned away. 😠We were stopping for coffees and were told to go elsewhere. We ended up having lunch at the place we went to. This place lost a $55 tab. 😳More

Small place with big portions. Good to excellent breakfast choices although the omelettes could use a few more spices. Lunches are also good and the service outstanding.
