Delish brunch menu. the Tiramisu stuff french toast ordered by my son - was worth the trip to the restaurant. The wait time was a bit long and seemed not as smooth or quick as promised. The host was apologetic. My LEO omelette was good...More

This place was well reviewed on other social media sites as a great place to eat. I visited for a late breakfast/brunch. They only do American coffee...are you kidding, invest in an espresso machine and a barista! I ordered two poached eggs and bacon. The...More

This might actually be the best breakfast I've had. The menu is quite varied and original, with the basics as well as many creative, delicious-sounding choices. I had the crab, gruyere and asparagus scramble which was delicious, as well as a side of fresh fruit,...More

They serve lunch too but this place is all about Brunch. Get the French toast for a real treat. You may have to wait in line to get a table but it's worth it. Very accommodating service and great food.

Living 3 blocks away, we came here occasionally for brunch. I have nothing but good to say about their food, but their service could have some improvement. In fact, we only came here for food (which I would rate 5 star) instead of the enjoyable...More

We were the ones critical of your breakfast. We told the waitress the pancakes were inedible and she said she would tell the chef. Nothing else was said or done, We have had good lunches but the breakfast was not good
