Good selection of breakfast. The fruits served didn't seem fresh at all, but that's my only complain. The coffee wasso good. I think they use the ILLY brand. They have outside seating with big fans, thank goodness!

On our last morning we had breakfast here. We sat outside and enjoyed the ambiance. I had the salted caramel banana pancakes and they were awesome. We also had the breakfast quesadilla that was amazing.

Popped in for breakfast on a Sunday morning. HUGE umbrellas over all tables, so no worries about the hot sun. Lots of breakfast choices. Had granola and the breakfast quesadillas. Both were really tasty. And, I know we're in Florida, but they're fresh squeezed OJ...More
