My husband chose this place for breakfast based on trip advisor reviews, and it lived up to expectations. I had the corn waffles with yogurt sauce and fruit. Tons of fruit and excellent yogurt topping which wasn't too sweet. My husband had the Mexican hash which was also excellent. We were seated quickly, and as we ate breakfast noticed how... More

Breakfast was wonderful. Their homemade salsa and orange chip muffin was delicious. Tangerine orange juice and coffee is to die for. Wish I lived here because I would come all the time. Their homemade jellies are great!

I was impressed with everything here. It's a simple, no frills place, but the service was everything I would want in a restaurant- fast and friendly, and the food was very good. The pricing was very affordable as well! They only take cash, so make sure you have some when you go!

Small local cafe. Wonderful breakfasts, and attentive staff. The cinnamon rolls are to die for. There is usually a 10-20 minute wait, but coffee is provided outside until your table is ready.

Go early and enjoy! If one has to wait, wait with a "smile"...complimentary coffee while you wait. Nothing not to like. You are greeted with a smile ....from management as well as your waitress. The food? FANTASTIC!!! My wife had the "special" pancakes of the day.....wonderful!! I had the BEST tasting corn beef hash that I have ever had. Corn... More

We recently had several weekend breakfasts here. The queue is always long but it's worth the wait. And it's fun hanging around outside people watching. The dishes are generally a cut above what you get elsewhere. It's just a small diner but it feels like you are eating some place special.
