Holiday Treats

Though it is most famous for the rich chocolaty drink with a homemade marshmallow, the brunch is rustic and flavorful, well worth your time. Sip on a Mexican hot chocolate at the bar while waiting for your table, and be sure to finish off your meal with a few of her ‘to-die-for’ pastries (we are big fans of the doughnuts!).
