Caught this little place before the crowds on a weekday. Not your father’s breakfast. Everything has this CIA chef’s touch. Wonderful selection of different menu items like the Breakfast BLT with pecan smoked bacon, fried green tomato and arugula and avocado topped with an egg on a ciabatta roll. Incredible! Fresh strong coffee. Perky and informed service. If you haven’t been yet you’ve got to try this place.

Excellent as always! Call ahead for seating as there is usually a wait , which speaks well of how good they are . Servers are attentive to every detail, making sure your glass is never empty. Chef always has some unique and yummy specials along with the traditional breakfast fare . You can’t go wrong at Blu!
