    The hot brown was just ok. Didn't have any ham on it so it was missing some flavor.

    Don't go to this place. They have horrible service and I presume it is because I was the only black person dining in there.

    It's a little pricey, but I can recommend it. Go for breakfast food, of any kind. If you're not in the mood for sweet (i.e. French toast), go for the farmhouse scramble!
