To get the full Bistro experience, we decided to try it out for ourselves. After taking a look at the menu, we decided on the red velvet pancakes and everything bagel. We loved the variety of toppings for both pancakes and waffles including walnuts, funfetti, caramel drizzle, and many options of fruits.

For our red velvet pancakes, we decided to top them off with the cream cheese icing. Their homemade bagel was very tasty and had plenty of flavors. The downside, however, was that it has a bit too much garlic. We found that the service was decent, not as fast as we had expected, but not too long of a wait either. Overall, the experience was quite pleasant.
