We have taken our daughter here several times with consistently excellent food and polite service. For brunch they have exceptional coffee and cinnamon roll. At dinner we enjoyed the seafood.

We had Sunday brunch with a group of seven. The menu was varied, the service prompt, and the decor quaint. The Montecristo was delicious, as was the egg, cheese and bacon sandwich with breakfast potatoes. The baked cinnamon bun was delicious, but extremely sweet, so...More
