Good breakfast, lots of choices

I can't say this place is anything special, but I had good coffee, a tasty veggie omelet. The setting is very basic, service was friendly but slow.

My husband and I came in for breakfast after being recommended by a friend. The only issue I had was that there were too many wonderful choices and I couldn't decide on which one I wanted! :) My husband got the Acapulco Express and said it was very tasty, I went with the Bacado Omelette which was stuffed with bacon,...

If you need coffee and lotsa bacon, this will do. Food off the Sysco truck, which is diner standard most places. Big booths, welcoming staff, and feels like Kansas to me. Not for hipsters.
