Great breakfast!

We stopped here for lunch after driving up from San Diego to drop our boy off at the Summer Arts camp. We were just in time for breakfast. Everything we ordered was yummy.

My family stayed in Idyllwild for the weekend and called in a 'to-go' order to bring back to our cabin. Turkey Garlic burgers and Beef Bolgogi. The Turkey Garlic burgers were HUGE! You would never know that a restaurant in Idyllwild could make such delicious American AND Asian food. I was not disappointed. If I could drive the 2-hour drive... More

My wife and I went here for dinner and were happy that we did. My wife had the beef bulgogi and I had the bapamit. My wife's beef was well cooked and her meal came with rice and salad. My meal was served with vegetables, beef and rice mixed together in a bowl. The restaurant was clean and also had... More

Well, the only Korean food in Idyllwild but if you are craving Asian food this is the place to go to. I go here on all my trips to Idyllwild. The owner is very sweet. One of these days I will try the breakfast which I hear is good too.

We stopped here first for breakfast and since it was so good we decided to try it out for dinner. Breakfast choices are great, they have something for everyone. Dinner time they have Japanese food and live piano playing. Now this sounds odd at first but it was so charming to have the live music while we enjoyed some very... More

My wife and I decided to take a long ride and we ended up here for breakfast. She had the ABC omelette and I had the Eggs Benedict. We shared dishes and they were both delicious. Staff here are very friendly and the service was excellent.

I haven’t had a breakfast this good in a long time. The menu has a thorough selection of classic omelets and egg dishes. My wife had the ABC omelet, avocado, bacon, and cheese, no, not cheddar, but rather cream cheese. She loved it. I had the Eggs Benedict and it was utter perfection, three perfectly poached eggs sitting atop hefty... More
