If you're looking for some classic breakfast and lunch options, this is the place for you. Don't expect anything too out there but boy do they do the basics well.
I had the eggs benedict with bacon and my friend had eggs royale. Both were delicious, well served and overall the place had a very simple feel to it.
I would definitely return for my staple breakie! more
