The restaurant is beautiful with antique decor and a large bar with lounge seating. The food was prepared with fresh ingredients and tasted good. Service was also good. Will come back to try the dinner menu.

My vegan wife and I chose this restaurant because of her phone conversation with Gabby. For our brunch the restaurant was mostly empty. The service was great. We each had pancakes and mimosas. She also got the sweet pea ravioli to go. It was delicious.
