It was the slowest service I have ever seen. When asked where food was they said it's up then 1/2 hour later they said making it

My husband ordered the Blue Plate which included fried eggs, sausage, home fries and thick- sliced wheat bread. He would have preferred more seasoning on the potatoes, but otherwise all was good. I ordered pesto scrambled eggs, which were delicious. Included was bacon, home fries (I added hot sauce for added flavor) , band thick-sliced sweet potato bread. We also... More

We enjoy coming here for breakfast occasionally. It was crowded when we were here on a Sunday morning before church. Food is good and we like supporting a local, family run business. They refilled our coffee quickly and often. Staff is pleasant and attentive.

Fabulous home cooked meals and the price is right. Keep in mind this is a family owned and run restaurant and that is what makes it so darn special. Everything here is made with love, like your grandmother baked it. Made to order. Ambiance is wonderful and the small staff work hard. I would rather wait here for a good... More

The quick deal is my wife and daughter and I went to this much ballyhooed restaurant with high hopes. After waiting in line and ordering AND PAYING UPFRONT COMPLETE WITH TIP, we took our seat and waited for 5 coffee re-fills and an hour for our meal to arrive. This is breakfast stuff....not rocket science. At one point my wife... More

This is a great restaurant with a warm eclectic atmosphere and a friendly efficient staff. The breakfasts are made to order. Enjoy their delicious coffee and relax while your feast is prepared. If you've never eaten sweet potato pancakes, you're in for a treat. And, be sure to pick up some baked goods to take home. Fabulous pies, both traditional... More

I've tried other places downtown that do the breakfast all day thing, and I've been most pleased with this one. It's vey good value, seems less expensive than the other ones, they seem to have healthy choices without charging you extra for them, and I actually got filled before I finished my meal. Some of them I feel like I... More

This is a order at the counter place, especially know for breakfast. A must try are the corn meal pancakes. It's not fancy - but the food is really good.

The service was really slow and the waitress was rude. We ordered sausage and shrimp gumbo, only one piece of sausage. My daughter ordered a veg meal and it came with meat. When waitress returned, she slammed down plate and never said a word. Will never go back

Ducked in here on a cold day in February. The smell was intoxicating as we crossed the threshold into this quaint little place. We were only getting coffee and dessert and weren't disappointed. Coffee is strong (with free refills) and desserts were fantastic. Great little hometown place to stop amidst the funky, oftentimes unfriendly coffee shops in downtown Colorado Springs.
