Every year we make sure we have breakfast here. This year we were pleasantly surprised that they added lobster to the menu. So I got the lobster omelet. It was filled with lobster. So good.

This place is very popular with the locals, especially for breakfast, and can be quite crowded on a Sunday morning. It is worth a wait!
