Food was great but the coffee was excellent. Service was good. Depending on day and time there may be a waiting to be seated for up to 45 minutes but worth the wait. Tables a bit close, your neighbour could tip your coffee mug over...More

Great place for breakfast/brunch, but I recommend getting their early as lines can be frustrating at times. Had the Cassoulet - which is fantastic and i really like how everything is cooked in a skillet. Would highly recommend.
