Very welcoming, great friendly service & good food. I could wax lyrical about this place but that says it all really. If you're in the area & in need of a feed, do not miss this place.

Our family of 5 went here for breakfast on Sunday morning. We were able to get seated right away and the food was great. Coffee was pretty awesome too! Reasonably priced.

Dress code is as you are very informal it's a diner not a formal type restaurant . Think you can make reservation and it's open all day if I remember rightly
