Stopped in for a late Sunday breakfast. Everything was fresh and well prepared. Good coffee, great blueberry muffin! The service was good and my wife called the blueberry pancakes the best she ever ate.

When you walk into a place and unexpectedly find a dish on a menu then order it and find it was far better than anticipated, you have to leave a review. The tuna tartare in wontons was superb! Thank you!

Excellent breakfast...quick, friendly service. Food was good portion and nice and hot. If in downtown harbor area, be sure to stop in.

Start off your breakfast with high quality orange juice. The hollandaise on the eggs Benedict is excellent, not too thick with a nice touch of lemon. The crabmeat was a little on the skimpy side. The hash browns were crispy and not at all greasy....More

Coffee was weak, food not great. The hash browns tasted like frozen. There are better restaurants out there.
