We went here before a concert and sat at the bar. The Bar Tenders Scott and Christine were awesome, very friendly, personable and great service. The turkey sandwich and burger was wonderful. We recommend going there based on our experience.

This place is in a very old building. Place was busy but seated quickly. Quick and friendly service. Breakfast was great...Not greasy and fast. Quality bacon and breakfast drinks from the bar. All 4 of us said we would go back again.

Great place. Clean, and pleasant staff. The "homemade" potatoes chips are not as good as 10 years ago. We used to go there to have a drink and eat tons of those amazing chips, but alas.... they have different people cooking. Other foods were very...More

This is a local secret. Their menu is not your usual standards and have a wide selection of Omelettes and Benedicts. They don't take reservations so if it's Sunday morning come early. The wait staff is friendly and always smiling eager to serve and please....More
