Much better than my last visit which was two years ago. Coffee good, breakfast menu very good also. Recommend the French toast or the fish sliders, both enjoyed.

Great scones but I haven't ever enjoyed a coffee here. As a local resident I've been frequently disappointed with the coffee but the service is great as is the location.
