It's a bit pricy here, but definitely worth it. I am in love with the waffles, they have a pawprint in the middle too. The decor is precious and the service is always on point :) love this place.

The biscuits are beastly, but bland as all get out! You need butter and jam to choke it down! The hash browns are fabulous, but who can screw those up!? Service was phenomenal, very friendly staff.

Went for breakfast, portions were huge but everything was just OK. There wasn't anything exciting about it. The coffee was eh, my corned beef was cold, and I hardly ate my meal. Just overall average.
