Fabulous breakfast

I was here on business and was seeking a good place for breakfast. I found this place through Urban Spoon (sorry Trip Advisor). The breakfast options were unique and delicious. I was able to order a delicious soy latte, thank you. The service was fast and the food was amazing. The decor was... read more

This place has great southwestern-style breakfast and lunch entrees and creative specials on the weekends. We go at least once a week, have been going for years, and are never disappointed.

I have been there many time for breakfast and have always had great food and service. For the first time tried Eggs benedict with homemade cornbread and chorizo sausage. I think I found my new favorite breakfast!!

I don't know where to begin. Food has to be the best we have ever eaten for breakfast. I can see why they have people standing and waiting in line. Food was excellent, staff was the best I've seen. Staff dresses very tastefully and are very polite and professional. Decor is very tasteful. It can be a bit noisy but... More

Some of the best oatmeal to be found anywhere and great home baked breads. A good place for a wholesome breakfast or lunch. This place has no dry shelf. Its all natural from scratch food. No cans, no boxes.

Amazing breakfast can be found here! Great coffee, healthy choices (and not so healthy choices), and even dessert options! Long lines in the summer - so get there early or bring a book and read outside while you wait. In the winter the wait is not so bad. If you like Eggs Benedict, try The Jeffrey. If you get potatoes...

Nice place, would be closer to a "5" but the prices knock it down a bit. Never had something that wasn't extremely good, from griddle items, to southwest to eggs Benedict (my favorite). The coffee is quite good as well.

So, this place, we waited about 30 minutes to get seated. For breakfast, that's not very normal but let me tell your it was well worth the wait. I was worried about taking my 3 kids and how they would do but the restaurant was so casual and laid back that it ended up being a great experience. The hostess... More

This is more of a place to meet people. Most mingle outside of the small diner and do not go in. It was hard to tell if the line went out the door but the people were just mingling. When we got in, it was not so impressive. Did I mention small space? The service was less than average but... More
