This is a fun good breakfast/coffee shop. Usually crowded. You get on the line and order and it's brought to your table.

I love the coffee here! Breakfast is excellent. The baked goods are delicious. If you are a fan of Texas sheet cake, Big City sells a chocolate cake that is similar.

We read about the pastry sizes and the food portions but you have to see it to believe it. Walking in, I eyed a huge breakfast burrito the size of an arm as someone was about to devour it. We ordered a peach apple pie scone to go and when she handed it to me, there was no mistaking the... More

So any pastries from which to choose! A small piece of quiche and raspberry lemon scone delightfully accompanied my stout coffee. Fresh berry medley adorned my husband's waffle. Service is fast in spite of an ever-growing order line. Servers bring the food out to us in a timely fashion. Next time I would like to try the gluten-free quiche.

HOLY CRAP, everything here is gigantic. It gets really crowded her on a Sunday morning. But if you can get your butt in a seat, you won't be disappointed. The pastries are the size of a dinner plate and look wonderful. I didn't have any of them because they looked so big, so I ordered the egg wrap. The eggs... More

It was very crowded and we were waiting longer than usual for our order. I actually had to go up to... More

This was a wonderful breakfast place for my family to fuel up for our road trip. The service staff was great, and the atmosphere was really vintage. Food and coffee were superb, and they do serve huge portions. It was a busy place when we arrived at 9 am on Sunday, but the turnover rate for the customers was fairly... More
