I ate breakfast here twice because it was within walking distance of my hotel. Fabulous, old-fashioned breakfast food; omelets, scrambles, waffles, etc. Excellent food, excellent service. There's a long wait on the weekend, but got right in on weekdays.

Somewhat typical, but with some unique offerings to make it out of the ordinary as far as breakfast places are concerned. Service was prompt. The food was fresh and flavorful. The prices were fair.
