- If you don't have time to dine, stop by the take out section next door to the restaurant which offers a vast variety purchased by weight
- The desserts that were sitting out in the room looked very inviting and yummy. Unfortunately, we didn't order dessert. We should have!
Food/Drinks: The omelettes are thin with just the right amount of filling, almost crepe-like. They come with a mini corn muffin (yum!), twice-baked potatoes and a small green salad.
The menu had a number of selections on it for breakfast foods as well as lunch foods, and looking around at the other tables, the presentations were nice all around.
The egg white omelette was very tasty and it came with a salad and toast. I have to say that it was one of the better breakfasts I've had when it comes to egg white omelettes of any type. I ordered the "make-your-own" omelette which includes three ingredients, so I went with spinach, tomatoes and mushrooms.
The eggs benedict was excellent with Canadian bacon (and the fries that came with it were very good too!)
Overall, the service was very good and we didn't have to wait long for the food to arrive.
Atmosphere: It's a nice casual cafe/restaurant with a slightly country ambiance. It's a square space and very open, airy and bright. It wasn't noisy but at the time that we went which was close to noon, it was not completely filled. Being that it was the middle of July, I could understand. The crowd was "upper east side" but very relaxed, not the atypical upper east side crowd. There were families and couples.
Just a note that they have a take out section on the other side which also has some seating. The food is very appetizing and includes salads, sandwiches, sweets and a variety of foods in the refrigerated cases which are purchased by weight.
