We visited this grille twice, for breakfast. The first time was excellent so we decided to pay a second visit. Service was not so good the second time. Only one cup of coffee materialised and the staff seemed to go missing. Good food thhough.

Neighborhood feel for this place. Bartender was great, drinks were nicely poured and reasonably priced.
