  • Employees are required to wash their hands continuously throughout the day.

  • There will be plenty of space between tables, and possible staggered breakfast reservations to give us time to make sure your tables are pristinely clean for you.

  • Condiments like salt and pepper, cream cheese and jellies, and sugar may be individually wrapped to avoid handling bottles. Drinks will also be served individually.
