Visited with 5 other people. The diner was busy however they managed to accomodate a group of 6. Food was excellent. The whole group enjoyed their different meals. The service was friendly and fast.

Highly recommend you visit this cafe! We had brunch there and enjoyed it so much we went back for dinner! The staff were super friendly, the service was quick. It's a busy vibrant happening atmosphere, with various seating options, including booths, tables, and bar seats.
