    I hate to be that person but the food is just average. The pancakes were dry & the burrito used processed cheese in it and on top of it.

    Pro tip: go with a Benedict, especially of the florentine or crab cake persuasion. Yums for days. (Weekends, 8am-5pm)

    Fish tasted dirty, as if it were farmed. Sent it back, and it took forever to get a pasta dish replacement. Service staff were polite, but scattered. Unless you want to people watch, don't bother.

    What a FAB find if you have your puppy (or baby) in tow. They put out water bowls for pooches & are completely cool w/anyone bringing their dog. Tasty salads, too, & good vino by the glass.
