5 of us came here for a brunch type of meal. Nice place, good location and very accommodating. Seems like a nice privately run business. Food was nice, we had pancakes, toasties and omelettes. Coffee was nice, beer was good too. Will definitely be back!

Stopped in to eat my fries from Velminckx. The service was exceptionally friendly. Enjoyed the window seat and was tempted to come back for breakfast.

Bought some fries from the stand across the street. If you buy a beer here you can use the outdoor seating to enjoy your fries. Considering how great a combination beer and fries is it's definitely something I'd recommend.
