What a surprise

We were looking to have breakfast at somewhere new. Our breakfast was excellent. The food was hot and tasty.

I went here with 5 kids. It was a holiday so it was crowded. They told me 45 minutes but I was seated in 15. The server was very friendly. The kids varied in age and they had something for all of them. I ordered a ham, bacon, and green pepper omelette. It was huge and very good. Can't really... More

Good food, but nothing spectacular. On our last visit, we had trouble with the service; our waitress never returned for refills or to get boxes for our leftovers. Vast variety of items for lunch and dinner just nothing that you HAVE to go for. Like the rest of the Portillos chain, I fear the worst is yet to come. Since... More

Nice portions and service. The orange juice was squeezed freshly and very delicious. It was recommended to eat here for breakfast by friends and we will return.

When Honey Jam was bought out I feared the worse! Its true! We went today and many of the special things gone off of the menu. Bananas Foster, white choc rasberry waffle to name a couple! Just a disappointment all around! By by HJ! Rest in peace!

Had great breakfast with friends while visiting the area. The food was excellent for all . Three of us had waffles and pancakes. My blueberry pancakes were a huge stack. I finished them and was stuffed . OMG they were good. The coffee was the best I had the entire week. Wife had french toast and ate some of my... More

If you like breakfast food this is the place to go. Great coffee, wonderful atmosphere, the only down side is there usually is a wait and they don't take resevations

The omelettes are great and the pancakes delicious. However, waiting for a table makes the experience less satisfying.

Stopped in on a Saturday afternoon & felt like I walked into granny's cabin. We haven't missed a weekend visit since. EVERYTHING on the menu is pretty darn good! It's a little dark & the decor isn't modern, but what granny has an updated dining room, lol.
