    1. They look re-open for dinner. we will try it again soon.

      1. They re-opened on March 25. The website mentioned it was for breakfast and lunch only, but the Facebook page said that dinner would resume the following Friday.

        Their breakfast/brunch menu is AWESOME and I'm going to try to get there during my upcoming visit.

          I went to Sweet Basil’s Café for breakfast on Saturday. I had the strawberry mascarpone French toast and really enjoyed it!

        2. We were there for breakfast on Mother's Day and while it was my first visit, it certainly won't be my last. Just reading the menu told me these people care about what they're doing, and my Spanish eggs (w/chorizo and potatoes) didn't disappoint. I must get back for the lemon mascarpone pancakes!
