This is the place to hit for a Sunday brunch. Jazz music plus delicious avocado toast with burrata in this cavernous, retro-styled restaurant! Highly recommended!



We had the brunch special, which is a phenomenal deal considering it's such a nice venue. It comes with an entree, fruit, a basket of mini muffins and unlimited coffee, juice, mimosas and bloody Mary's. The service was "meh", and the selection for the entrees is limited with no opportunity to pay a bit more for, say steak and eggs or even French toast! They also heavily favor the OJ in the mimosas which are premade with no opportunity to get topped off to even it out. That said, again, for the price it was a great deal...the strict rules and limitations however keep me from calling it a "wow" and actually referring friends.



It was great! Food was great, service was excellent. The waitress was attentive We tried4 kinds of oyster all were excellent,fresh and sweet Definetly willgo b ack The restaurant got more crowded as the night progressed We were there for3 hours and not once did we felt we had to leave Had argreat time!
