Always a favorite

This is a popular restaurant which always looks fresh and up to date. I am very fond of the Rocky Mountain High.

I've been here many times, still lives up to the hype. Great, fresh breakfast items. The specials are always good, but I really like the Eggs Benedict. Sometimes it can be a long wait, especially on the weekends, but its well worth it!

The best sandwiches and soups. Salads and breakfast items are always fresh. There is something for everyone. You can have half sandwich with salad or soup. Also you can substitute potatoes for fruit for a healthier choice. The wait staff is friendly and coffee carafes are on the table for all you can drink fresh and hot coffee. I have... More

Fabulous breakfast/brunch place. Busy and popular especially on a Sunday! Omlette's are delicious as are the eggs benedict. Coffee is good and plentiful, they even give you a to go cup when you leave! The coffee mugs are really cool too. Waitstaff are super friendly and attentive.

Food is hot, clean (no chemicals), organic, and delicious. They have added a "fresh" menu in which they use quinoa and other ancient grains to their pancakes and their toast. Very good service, outstanding coffee and good value for the price.

We have been here many times when we lived in the area. Since we moved this is one of our go to places when we visit. Lots of creative menu choices and all are very good. I like that they leave the pot of coffee at your table and you also have a pitcher of ice water with lemon on... More

So many choices! I decided on a half egg salad sandwich with a cup of Vegetarian Vegetable soup. The egg salad sandwich was amazing. It was served on toasted sour dough bread with a tomato and avocado. A small house salad with poppyseed dressing was served on the side. The soup was hearty and delicious. My sister had the tuna...

Loved the eggs Benedict, and my server was helpful and quick. The place was filled in the late morning (11:20), which I didn't expect: lots of ladies getting together with their friends and catching up.

The only issue I have is that there is too much to chose from, everything on the menu looks great. The place gets busy but the service is very fast and therefore you don't have wait long, they give you one of those flashing things so you can hang around in the sun in the summer and wait. When you... More

Great place to eat. They have good food and a nice atmosphere. Service is excellent, and since we were there to catch up with each other,it was particularly nice of staff not to rush us. We were able to sit and chat without pressure to leave. Their prices are moderate, but food great.
