We decided to take our seats outside since the weather was just perfect. Please keep in mind that after 11:00 pm the restaurant gets packed and if your looking for great seats there might be a wait.

 

The brunch selection has choices of juices, which were delicious and very fresh, and the salads that are prepared in jam jars were perfection, which made the whole experience even more interesting and healthy. The sandwiches and breakfast options from the Al La Cart menu was very healthy and yet flavorful.
