    Their eggs Benedict is wicked good, on a bed of spinach to do away with the English muffin works too!

    Everything on the brunch menu is worth trying. French Toast and eggs scrambles were standouts. The red potatoes were also excellent. Stumptown serves as the house brew.

    The French toast was okay, but the crushed red potatoes were the best thing on the menu. Choose wisely.
