We enjoy their fruit stuffed french toast and breakfast specials. The highlight was the lasagna we had for dinner later that evening. It was incredibly tasty with an authentic Italian sauce and the breadsticks were warm, and wonderful.

Went with friends to try out the breakfast menu, having had dinner here before. Service was a bit slow, and the food was unremarkable. Too many other options in the area to come back.
