We had breakfast here and the food and location were great - service was ok. Lox were very salty (delicious) - Cholla French Toast outstanding.

One of the best, if not THE BEST pastrami sandwiches I have ever had. A bit on the pricey side, but a huge one too. No way I was going to finish it, so had to bring half home. I got to enjoy it twice,...More

ABSOLUTELY NOT KOSHER! It used to be about 9 years ago but it is now owned by Asians and while they still serve Matzo ball soup and salmon and bagels etc, most of their menu is now pork based - ham, bacon, sausage, salami... More
