Likely the best Benedict I have found in quite a while. Excellent brunch site. Of note- menus on OpenTable are not current . Check menu on website if you need the menu. My waitress told me my preselected choices hadn’t been on the menu in over a year…..no worries - much good to choose from

The wine list is well-curated and offers something for every palate, with an emphasis on California wines. The food is lovely, providing many options for light fare and more substantial dinners. Check out the patio for a respite from Old Town chaos.

Trees above were lovely, as were the old buildings. Only problem was the buckets and others odds and ends not covered. Good was superb, as was the wine and beer. Excellent service.

It was great for everyday, reliable dining. I had the Kale Salad which came with a delicious dressing and the Turkey BLTA had rave reviews at our table. Portion sizes are good. The outdoor space was lovely and dog friendly but could be spruced up ever so slightly. Service was friendly but could have been a bit more attentive.
