Hotel told about this place and we were afraid it would be a tourist place. It is a very small place and you may have to wait a bit but it is worth it. We had the eggs benedict and it was superb.

A little hip and trendy place that is well worth the wait if busy. The food is to die for. The Eggs Florentine are amazing.

Overhyped place to be honest! Seeing the reviews I expected a good breakfast. What I got was however a grumpy waitress, who clearly couldn't handle all the costumers. It took 45 minutes before we got our food... and overall the food was not good: i...More

of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest
clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street
helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned
