Let Us Serve You – Introducing All-Day Tableside Ordering

Introducing tableside ordering all day - for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner.
Introducing tableside ordering all day – for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner.

Breaking news: We are now a full-service restaurant for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner. What does that mean? No more ordering at the counter and then scrambling to find a table, especially during busy times. Now, anytime you visit, check in with our staff at the host stand. We will seat you, and then our staff will take your order from your table.

We will still offer counter service for those of you just looking for some of our freshly baked pastries and desserts, a cup of coffee and/or a to-go order. There will be a few seats on the bakery side of the restaurant just for that purpose.

And our bar offers service all day – coffee in the morning, a light lunch or happy hour in the afternoon. Seats at the bar are not part of those used by the host stand. The bar becomes another spot to wait during busy times when our staff gets your table ready.

Like the temptation of our pastry and dessert counter while you are waiting in line? Well, we have thought that through for you. Upon being seated in our dining room. Our staff will have a fresh pastry tray and will ask if you want any of these added to your order.

We have made this move in response to your feedback. We know that breakfast/brunch times on weekends and many times during the week for lunch, our lines are long and getting a table is not the easiest. So, to improve our overall dining experience, we have made this move.

Let us know your thoughts on the new arrangement. Your feedback is always important to us.
