My husband, daughter and I stopped here on a weekday morning for breakfast. We were seated immediately and the service was great and the food was wonderful. We all ordered something different and I don't remember what they had, but I had the Trout and Eggs and it was wonderful! The trout was cooked just perfectly and it was so... More

Have been here many times when in the area for lunch. Breakfast items good. All the rest is predictable-never great, never bad. Beats Fast Food around it.

A favorite place to get a good breakfast when in Summit County! Sat at the bar for the first time and was amazed at how great the staff worked as a team! You will wait at peak times especially on the weekend but stick it out you won't be disappointed!

Very popular place with a long wait at lunch time. They do breakfasts and sandwiches very well. Salads not so much. Wilted lettuce with sprouts. The popular soup with cheese and potatoes is like eating a bowl of hollandaise sauce--too rich. Sausage breakfast skillet was hearty and delicious.

Fairly small restaurant that's usually pretty full. However, we did get seated promptly. The waitress was prompt, friendly and efficient. Our breakfast was quite good, and the other meals being served to people around us looked great. They serve big portions too.

This is a easy stop off the freeway, located in a strip mall with easy access. At noon we had choice of breakfast or lunch menu. I had the Blue river omelet which was served with hash browns done crisp and toast. It was served hot & quick. My partner had French toast & ham, it was thick French bread... More

It seems a little a.d.h.d. with 4 different servers, but it works. Everyone has a pleasant disposition and quick to fix any issues. The food is tasty. I'd suggest the shrimp mushroom cheese crepe.
