You may wake up and roll into a chair to be served 2005 Westchester Magazine’s “Best Breakfast” in its Best of Westchester series, omelets full of goat cheese and spinach or whatever delights you. Luckily for the late riser’s, breakfast is served until 4 p.m. and dinner is served all day. Definitely stop by this scrumptious restaurant for a taste of France right here in Chappaqua.
