Food is basic and very good, but the kitchen is very slow: 45 minutes or more to get breakfast. Some waitstaff very nice, but one young woman was quite rude and seemingly clueless about customer service.

Nice place to sit outside, talk, read and relax. Food for breakfast reasonable choices. Nothing special for tea drinker.

We went here based on the other positive reviews on Trip Advisor but had a disappointing experience. We ordered eggs benedict and the veggie omelet. The breakfast potatoes were not salted and lacked flavor. The omelet also lacked flavor and the eggs benedict were undercooked....More
