Wowza. Sunday brunch is a 10. A vegetarian can get lots of great food here ! That’s not all though, Pasta bar, custom omlets, shrimp, waffles, just to mention a few things — and the best desserts. My dad loves the freshly sliced roast beef...More

I have been to a couple of weddings there, one outside and one inside. Both were handled beautifully, and the size of your wedding is ideal for them.
