After a morning stroll, and ideal place to take breakfast. Place was very busy, but service was good. Plenty to choose from, including fresh pastries, salads , bacon etc. Prices were reasonable, in a very relaxed, and amiable atmosphere. Well worth trying out, lunch too.

Had a few bad experiences here with the food and service. It's off my list of places to go now. Owner was very rude on more than one occasion. It is a shame because the atmosphere is nice

I always enjoy my meal with visiting sideboard. Great salads, sandwiches, burgers, and desserts. The atmosphere is friendly for families, even pets. One draw back is the one the weekends it can be very crowded, better to take your food to go.
