Staff were friendly and the food was good only the chill cafe nearby out scored it. I travel alone and it's a pleasure when places like this treat you the same as a larger group.

We stopped here just as our young kids were becoming hungry and tired. The staff were quick and friendly. Great crepes. Huge fat pancakes for the kids. The hashbrowns were more like a gourmet fritter which was fantastic. The service was super quick.
