They have the best chocolate chip ; and also oatmeal cookies. But I went there for a late lunch & had tossed, chicken, green salad. I'm on a very limited budget, & this was one of the least expensive items. Mostt of the lunch/breakfasts were apx $12.00 as I recall. They have tasty food & there are two dining rooms... More

I had breakfast here with the greatest man I've ever had in my life and his family. The only thing better than being with that sexy man was the food from Denica's. Eating those delicious eggs while staring in to my lovers eyes was more than perfection.

We visited 2 times and both times stood in line for at least 40 minutes and then had to sit at separate tables both times. The food is wholesome and plentiful but nothing special for the price. Granted on both visits it was during the post Christmas season but space and tables are still a problem. There is no tipping... More

Food is pretty good and locals tolde how good it was but for me it was a bit expensive when combined with the lack of table service. They have a Mexican and American theme to the food and many baked goods.

Eggs Benedict was really good. Potatoes not so great. Dry and over cooked from being on the cook top too long.
