My husband had the breakfast deal $7 and he got his eggs and bacon exactly as he requested with GF toast. I had a fresh juice, it was excellent and the coffee was excellent. Our visit was very pleasant.

Food average and staff tried their best. We were told by the owner that there was no BYO during holiday season - no signage to indicate and also locals in the restaurant with their own wine. The owner informed us that the guests with their...More

They open at 6:30. I've been back since I wrote the review, again not disappointed with service or food. Only downside is wine is a little expensive but good selection.
