    Their baked eggs special are delicious (except the cabbage) and flakey biscuits are delicious as well as their Benedict.

    Pretty cramped, might be ideal for parties of 2. Food's pretty good, and despite being busy service was prompt for brunch service!

    Excellent BLT panino - there's spinach on it! Perhaps not the most obvious place to work with a laptop (I was the only one), though it is possible. Closes at 4pm.

    WARNING: The BACON gravy is based upon the MUSHROOM gravy! So if you don't like mushrooms, don't get the bacon gravy (no matter how much it may be calling out to you)!
