It may have been a little warm but it was so tasty. Service was on point. We had omelets yesterday for breakfast and my husband had a Philly steak with a fried egg. They make their own jams! This place is so good that I think we will go back again today!

After reading all these great reviews, we had high expectations. WRONG! Service- waitress seated us, gave menus, then served and gave bills to every other table before returning for our orders. Food- "6 oz. burgers" were the size and texture of a frozen White Castle. At $12 each, included a few pieces of raw onion and a skinny tomato slice.... More

Based on the reviews, I was expecting a fantastic breakfast. I ordered the homemade hash which is one of their specialities. The corned beef was flavorful but the potatoes were little teeny deep fried squares. My husband ordered his standard breakfast of eggs, bacon & potatoes. His potatoes were larger but were also deep fried. If you like your American... More

Breakfast and Lunch only. Get the CBR wrap. Chicken, Bacon with greens and a dash of ranch dressing, very good. Don't expect French Fries with your meal here, doesn't happen, Bag of chips goes well with a Bloody Mary.
