Now Bryan's. Haven't been there yet but he is an excellent chef. He was previously at Compass Rose Winery but they did not attract enough restaurant patrons to do justice to his culinary expertise. I wish him great success at this new location.

I had breakfast here twice during my trip in early October. The eggs were cooked perfectly (over medium) and everything was good. The location is easy to find and a comfortable place to have a meal before heading out for the day.

We were surprised to find this to be a local favorite. The outside doesn't tell the whole story! Inside you find a clean and quite appealing atmosphere. Food was exceptionally good!!

Stopped on a Saturday morning for a quick breakfast. Simple little bakery serving some egg dishes. Biscuits were great and the pastries looked wonderful. Simple, good, fare.
