We were looking for eggs benedict and found it in this small simple breakfast diner. It was perfect. Great breakfast food at a reasonable price. The wait staff was perfect, as was the food. In and out quickly and ready for the day.

Got here before a queue formed outside (other places already had queues) and got seated quickly. Service was good, food was good but not amazing. It's good for a reasonably priced fill-up before you go exploring, and it is close to the water front and...More
