Great food, friendly service and seated quickly on a Saturday! Couldn't decide so server recommended kids size french toast to go with my broken yolk. So good, so filling.

Everything is great. My favorites are the "Omelet you can't refuse" and the pecan crescent french toast. I never leave disappointed. I especially like getting a table

This stop was for my friend's bachelorette celebration for lunch. The food and the atmosphere was so authentic and perfect for a unique experience. The food was so tasty. There were 7 of us and everyone loved their meal! I will definitely visit this restaurant again. If you go, the croissant French toast will knock your socks off!

My local friends brought me here for a delightful breakfast, I had the omelet you can't resist with cinnamon toast, OJ and a cup of berries. Once we got our table service was good and the food even better! A must for a hungry traveller, a family sit down or a snack before shopping at the Keystone Mall. My best... More

Yep, this was a place so nice, we went back twice. Great food, great imaginative menu, great prices too. Oh, and the Cinnamon Bread -- well, you have to see it (and try it) to believe it. Must go

I had the "an offer you can't refuse" omelette with the cinnamon toast, it was lighter than expected which was a good thing, eggs cooked well. My husband had the cinnamon pecan French toast which was delicious. The coffee bar was nice but a little chaotic.

I have always really enjoyed the food here for years. I do however miss the old warmer atmosphere and ambience prior to the remodel. It used to feel more local in here and less commercial but I understand the need to expand and update. Still, I really enjoyed the omelettes or anything else I get there. I think I prefer... More
