Low-key, neighborhood restaurant.  You’ll love the one-of-a-kind combination of fresh food and great music over late breakfast in the sun-drenched rose garden.

What to order

First and best grilled vegetable salad in town – try it with lobster.  Late breakfast classics include fresh lobster hash and home baked brioche fresh toast.  A killer Bloody Mary or fresh mint Ivy Gimlet is a must.  Everything is served with our hot-from-the-oven homemade currant scones and fresh raspberry jam.

Who comes here

Darling, we never tell.

Sweet Tooth

Homemade triple-layer chocolate cake with homemade vanilla gelato or freshly baked Tart Tatin with house whipped cream or à-la-mode.
