Many mornings, customers wait outside in chilly rain or mist for their tables here. Luckily, the awning area has heaters. And while breakfast here is worth the wait, it is made interesting by the offbeat clientele. Ordinary breakfast dishes are prepared in unexpected ways, pancakes with ginger or scrambled eggs and salmon. Try the Chorizo and Pepper Omelet with Brie and Tomato. There is a lunch menu, but breakfast is served all day and it is the specialty. The restaurant serves beer and wine and great Bloody Marys. To know more, visit the website.
