    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

    Paleo diet breakfast tip: veggie omlet no cheese, sauteed spinach instead of hashbrowns, and a side of bacon. Yum!!!

    If you ask kindly, you can get your side of hash browns prepared as the special spuds (addtl charge) but well worth it.
