My girlfriend and I had a quick meal here - I had a decent burger, she had a salmon salad that she was happy with. Service was friendly, prices reasonable and it felt like a decent family place

Warm and welcoming on a cold rainy day. Specials are on the board on the back wall. Great service. I was there for breakfast but the lunch menu looked great too and a special Thanksgiving dinner (by reservation) looked wonderful! Outside seating is dog friendly.

I really enjoyed the biscuits and gravy but the wife said the biscuits were too sweet for her taste (not mine!). The gravy was extremely creamy. Overall, a very nice... More

We had to get away from the heat so we went to the coast and stayed in Encinitas and while there started looking on Tripadvisor for someplace to eat as I wanted a cafe style place to eat. Viola! Turns out we were staying right round the corner from this place... More

Good prices and wow, good food in a very efficient and fast paced restaurant. That fast pace does not apply to the clientele except that they we were promptly and professionally served an outstanding meal. We were there for breakfast on a Saturday morning and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. From the excellent coffee to the hand made corned beef hash... More
