Ordered salads and sandwiches plus deserts for working lunch for 10. High quality and delicious . Just what we needed. Cost was fair plus they came and picked up platters after we had finished.

I am so glad we found this place, will definitely eat here again. It is a small grill where baked goods are made on the premises. Quality ingredients make for tasty food.

We were here twice over the Thanksgiving weekend and each visit was delicious. The Turkey eggs benny with cranberries (such a unique idea) was so, so good. The following day we tried the French toast which didn’t disappoint either. Recommend 2 Chefs when you’re looking...More

Very good breakfast, options for all 4 of us; one who is a vegetarian. Large seating area on the sidewalk but nicely decorated and closed off, so you don't feel like you are sitting in the street. Friendly staff and good portions for breakfast. A...More
