Food is excellent, service is great, and the Belgium Waffle with strawberries, blueberries, bananas and whip cream is the best!!! All the food is great and the kitchen staff work like a well oiled machine!!

I went here for breakfast. Ordered an omlette with hashbrowns with a side of pancakes. Omlette was pretty good. Hashbrowns were burnt and pancakes were doughy tasting. Take a pass on this one.

Fresh fruit and coffee immediately after being seated. Great service!! Freshly-squeezed OJ, great coffee, and delicious food--huge portions, though! Hubby had steak and eggs (never seen a breakfast sirloin that big!), and I had potatoes Benedict--both were excellent!

We stopped here for lunch and we were satisfied and full for the afternoon, because we were satisfied with their options of breakfast and lunch meals available during the day.

Four of us ordered breakfast there. There were pluses and minuses. On th up side, they serve fresh-squeezed orange juice. The setting is pleasant. The hash browns were crisp and the menu was varied. On the down side, the server brought out two meals and the other two in our party were not served until the first two had allowed... More
