We ate here at a Slow Travel GTG and can't think of a better venue - great food, great atmosphere, friendly attentive service. A winner!

As soon as you walk in and see the hearth in the main dining room, with its "Food Is Love" banner, you know you are about to have a great dining experience. Our expectations were right on. We met fellow Slow Travelers here for a Sunday brunch on the restaurant's patio. Perfect for our gathering. There were 8 of us, and we were attended to by their staff with genuine, friendly service.

We started off with a pitcher or two (three?) of their signature famous white sangria, which I highly recommend. I ordered the French Dip (sliced prime rib with jus on a french roll, and shoestring potatoes - YUM!!) and my husband ordered their daybreaker omelet, with spinach and tomato avocado salsa - loved it. Also, free 90 minute parking in the Metro lot next to the restaurant.
