Kirsh is both a restaurant and a bakery, and that means you should order something with bread here. Something like French toast. They do it sweet and savory, and it’s some of the best we’ve had. They also make some pastries, along with most other things you’d want to eat in the morning - oatmeal, steak & eggs, an English breakfast (for some reason). Come at night, and you can have something like a burger a grilled chicken breast. And if you have kids, feel free to bring them. There’s a little menu just for them.
