Great breakfast, lunch, or dinner in casual atmosphere.

The best smoked salmon w/ hollandaise sauce for breakfast, a great burger and very good sandwiches for lunch or dinner. Also more substantial dinners for big eaters. The best mojito ever! It looks like a dive from the outside, but the food is excellent! Reasonable prices too.

The place was packed on Sunday morning. Staff was great, and we were seated quickly. We had a couple of omelets and coffee which came with potatoes (maybe frozen?) and toast. It was fine, but we drove a bit out of the way hoping for something special, maybe just a good diner experience. Our's fell a bit short of that.

All around good food in a friendly and casual atmosphere; breakfast, lunch or dinner. Family friendly and has outdoor seating. I have had burgers, salads, Thai lettuce wraps, sandwiches and I've never been disappointed. Gluten-free items as well.

We've been coming here for years. It's just down the street from us and it has always been our go-to place for breakfast. Lunches and dinners are also very good. For lunch I recommend the fish tacos or hamburger, both are excellent. The dinner menu has a wide choice and I've never been disappointed. One of my favorites is the... More

Great place to stop after a day at the lake. They were very accommodating and let us bring out dog on the patio area. One down side smokers on the patio! Food was good, fish tacos very good, spicy and flavorful. My Capresse salad was excellent and the kids loved their burgers. The menu for the dog was over the... More

Very nice brunch here with a good variety of omelets and pancakes amongst the typical breakfast menu. I also splurged on a Bloody Mary and got my vitamins for the day thru a good variety of veggies in the drink. Next time I am coming back to try out their burgers...I am on the search for the best burger place... More

Don't get here too often. We were just in time for the start of Happy Hour. A must have are the loaded potato spring rolls. We also had the Grilled Beef sliders. They were grilled to the doneness I requested. The server was very cheerful & attentive.
