    Had eggs, toast and small red potatoes. Very good and waitress was knowledgeable. Was rather insulted when brunch partner and I were asked to give up out table as others were waiting. I have never been asked to leave a dining establishment in my life. I did not care for it. Next time will go to a larger establishment
