I usually don't review a highly rated restaurant when I agree with most of the prior reviews. However, I did need to get a vote in here to recognize what a great breakfast spot this is. I'll just add that the fresh blueberry pancakes with wheat germ are truly wonderful and that any egg dish with the house-made salsa will... More

This place is consistent. They always seem to do everything right and the food is solid. Server actually did forget to add one item to my omelette this time which was a first, but they can't be perfect all the time.

When you walk in the front door there is a notebook where you write down your name and how many people are in your party. There are tables inside, out front, and on the side of the cafe. Didn't wait long for a table inside. I ordered a short stack of pancakes and a side of toast. When I got... More

Popped in for breakfast. There is a small outside terrace which is small but good for people watching. Food is made with good quality ingredients. Delicious bacon, fresh bagels and the choc chip pancakes were exceptional. Very good value too.

This is quite an informal local diner. The menu is large and varied and the food is great. We bought two lunches between four of us (two adults and two children) and it was enough for us all to share! Staff are very friendly and the whole place has a nice vibe.

We had a really good breakfast here, they serve classic eggs, etc. Really good pancakes, and all sorts of inventive egg dishes and breakfast specials. Incredibly friendly service. I only gave it 4 stars because my sister in law got the teriyaki chicken (why, I have no idea!), but still it was an abomination of white rice, gooey sauce and... More

I believe that $12 before tax and tip for omlette is too much for this restaurant. Service was excellent, but that would be the only thing worth.
