Don't let the mediocre greeting stop you from eating here. 5 of us had breakfast and it was excellent.. pancakes, omelet egg sandwich muffins. Great coffee. All excellent Yes the service could be improved .. no one was rude just not overly Welcoming. I'd still go back!

We had a fabulous eclectic breakfast for 6 on 9/25/16. Thank goodness we had rezzies, as there was a street fair, and the place was packed.

The menu didn't blow me away but everything was farm fresh and local ingredients. I had an omelette and while it was good, it just didn't blow my socks off. It's a very affordable breakfast and they sell an assortment... More

Busy summer scene--looking forward to trying it again off season, especially want to check out the cheese selection. Table was tiny and very crowded--not a comfortable set up. Scrambled eggs and bacon was fine. Will review again off season.

I stopped in for breakfast before a meeting. The place is lovely with outdoor seating. The breakfast menu had a good variety and is cooked to order. I had an omelette which was delicious. Worth a visit.
