Tips

  • Service feels like a hotel, but portions are similar (i.e., small). When I just missed breakfast (which ends at 2pm) they made an exception for me. Free Wi-Fi is nice, too. Wifi password is 6263187006
  • Come here for breakfast! Everything is super yummy!
  • The waiters are great! The food is always hot and delicious.
  • Paleo diet breakfast tip: veggie omlet no cheese, sauteed spinach instead of hashbrowns, and a side of bacon. Yum!!!
  • The Belgian waffle is light and good.
  • Free parking validation here for 90 min in adjacent garage.
  • Croque Madame
  • Make sure you check for bar seating if there's a long wait. Full menu!
  • Fresh ground beef, music, art.

  • Be sure to come early or make prior reservations on weekends, weekdays are better. Good food, good coffee, good service, wonderful ambiance. I love the bacon!

  • The Spinach and cheese omelette is something else. I don't eat bacon or ham, so I go with veggies.
