Don't go if you're thinking a cheap meal... our breakfast party of five averaged $25 a person with tip. With that said, go if you can afford it. A wide variety of dishes, quick service and excellent food is the least I can say about this establishment. Everyone in our party had a different dish and most found it impossible... More

I love the food here, last time I was there, I sat at the bar and saw all of the chefs and prep cooks making the food right in front of me. It was so amazingly fun to watch, what a show!

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
