The food at any time of day was great. We ended up there several times as the food was excellent and it was close to our hotel. The staff were courteous and the prices were good. They even made the bacon extra crispy.

We called in this small restaurant for a beer and wine one day and found it to be very good. You are able to get cake and coffee or a light meal and it was a pleasant experience.

Along with my husband, I enjoyed a great breakfast/lunch at Jason's Gusto Cafe. Delicious toasted bagel with scrambled egg and bacon at a very reasonable price. There is always a crowd enjoying breakfast there which shows how good the food is.
