Long wait but fun place

It was a sunday and they have bottomless champagne so the place was packed, it was a while before we could get in but with the weather it wasn't bad just to wait and people watch. They had plenty of employee's working and all seemed very happy with their jobs and moved people in and out quickly... read more

Great local spot, the crowds of people waiting to get a table is an obvious sign this is a popular place. Seating is super tight so get to know your neighbors and order what thy're having. I got the Country Eggs Benedict on the second day of my vacation, and the California Omelette on the 4th day. Both were over... More

Went for breakfast and it was the best. Eggs cooked just like I ordered. Bacon crisp and the potatoes were excellent. Recommend to everyone.

My husband and I had breakfast here before leaving town. We'd eaten the previous 2 days in our hotel restaurant (Hyatt) so it was nice to get out. This was a very good choice. I had a short stack of blueberry pancakes. Not on the menu, but they just added a small extra charge for the blueberries. Appreciated their flexibility... More

I have visited this place a few times. Ok, so maybe the food isn't the best, but the atmosphere is so amazing, and the service is excellent. And really, where else you can you get bottomless champagne for so cheap?
