I have now on 3 different occasions taken a group of friends there; both for breakfast and for lunch. I think it's a cute place and it offers a very nice menu with lots of choices. I particularly like the breakfast menu. The food itself is pretty good but where lies the problem is how rude they treat their patrons.... More

Great breakfast/lunch. Nice menu and lots to choose from; good service. Create a custom omelet or order one from the menu. The coffee was excellent during the first visit, but not so on the second visit. The eggs Benedict are OK, home fries are deep fried. Nice staff; dine in or out.

Sevice was slow and a little odd. Way over priced for a quick lunch. But the patio is nice and sunny.

I've been stopping here for lunch and late breakfast for longer than I can remember - whenever I'm on this side of Tampa Bay. The menu and prices are average, but the both the quality and quantity is great. I've always found the service to be friendly and attentive. I'll keep coming back.

A neighborhood restaurant, this restaurant offers breakfast and lunch daily. The food is good although the service is sometimes a little slow if they are busy. This restaurant has won awards.

We have been to this restaurant about 2 years ago and it was great but on this trip 3 weeks ago it was horrible. We sat outside and the server was rude and actually offered little service. We ordered coffee, Bloody Marys, Keish and a veggie omelet. The coffee was good, the Blody Mary was more hot sauce than anything,... More

Reasonable prices, combined with generous portion sizes of quality breakfast and lunch entrees, has kept it on our frequent dining list. The decor is a bit stodgy, but the patio is quaint. It's hidden in a strip mall, so the view isn't exactly outstanding, but it's all about the food.

This restaurant is a little hard to find since it is tucked away in the second row of shops in a strip shopping area. There is also a bad GPS location shown for this restaurant in certain applications. My son and his wife had directions on their smart-phones that were taking them to 2 different places. We took the opportunity... More

This place has a wall of windows, so every seat is bright and cheerful. The menu had a big selection of lunch and breakfast items. Specials of the week were posted outside and on each table. The mahi mahi sandwich was very good, and the roast beef au jous was excellent. They serve packets of sugar in the raw -... More

Other than being hard to find for people from out of town, Although I prefer ethnic foods, I had a decent business lunch there. We both had sandwiches and fries and they were tasty. I had a tuna melt and had a choice of both bread type and cheese type. The service was friendly and prompt and we overstayed their... More
