We arrived for dinner, and were seated without reservations. The decor is simple, yet classy. The service was good, and the meatloaf was excellent. The windows give a view of Central Market, and the ambiance was lovely at night.

I am not sure why we have never visited here before for brunch. The menu offerings were varied and super tasty. (I highly recommend the Carr’s omelette with lump crabmeat and fried tomatoes!) My family thoroughly enjoyed the chocolate cake with pb mousse filling.) Yummy!
