Excellent food, cordial service, indoor and outdoor tables for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The food is well prepared, and the portions are generous. The omelets are especially good.

We went for years and the quality remains. Great food with specialty menus to try. Lunches and dinners as delicious as their wonderful Sunday breakfasts. Worth a try. Interior is cozy and outdoor tables have umbrellas for sunny days. Alright for Kids too.
