The food here was really good. I had the smoked trout benedict and my wife had the smoked trout omelet. The smoked trout on both were really good, and so were the homefries and coffee.

The Eggs Benedict with Smoked Trout was amazing. The coffee tasted like good New Zealand Coffee. Helpful staff. A little bit of a wait but was worth it.

Popped in for a quick breakfast right when they opened and it was great! The portions are big and the food is great. Highly recommend the corned beef hash. Get there early as there was already a line forming when we finished our meal.
