I really like this place, since there is a huge variety of dishes to choose from. It gets very busy for brunch on the weekends, but the food does come out quickly. The restaurant recently dropped the dish that I always ordered there, the Breton Benedict, so I don't come here as often anymore, but there are still plenty of... More

This is a place where I did not expect such a pleasant atmosphere and wide dinner selection. It is now one of my husband's and my favorite places.

Not bad to wait for a table if the weather is nice. Delicous pancakes...service a bit slow, but just gave us more time to linger over coffee.

The line was out the door, there were hordes of kids (three of those were mine :)) - but it's what you expect from breakfast diner places. Kid friendly, affordable and okay food. That's it! :)

At the recommendation of my wife, I took my son to this restaurant for breakfast on one of his days off from school. There was a nice variety to choose from on the menu and the food was very good. The prices were a tiny bit more expensive than a place a restaurant like IHOP or Bob Evans but the... More

I saw a sign that said "kids eat free." I didn't read the details but the place had a lot of parents and young children. I ordered a Boca Raton Benedict for 13.99. It was delicious and the portion size was okay. I also ordered a Western Breakfast Burger for 11.99. The omelet in the sandwich was a generous size... More

We sat on the bar rail infront of the glass that seperates you and the kitchen. It was fun to watch the well oiled machine of these chef's crank out culinary delights. The food was fresh, fantastic and came up pretty quick. The chair rail was filled with kids and adults alike. This place was crowded and I understand why.... More
