Delicious!

What a pleasant surprise! I went here expecting the normal mom n pop breakfast joint but it was so much more. The menu offered many options for breakfast from omelets to scrambles to frittatas. These options were not the standard flavors though, they offered the Bacado which is a bacon and... read more

This is a treat for breakfast or lunch. The food is a above the norm and has lots of great flavors. The lines can be really long on the weekends but if you go early, you should beat the crowds.

Very nice south western decor. Many lengthy menu descriptions of choices for breakfast. Just wanted an ordinary breakfast so just informed the server what I wanted rather than one of the many choices. Food and service was very good. Was a bit more pricey than a Mom and Pop type of restaurant.

This is such a popular restaurant in Grand Haven the weekends for breakfast there is always a wait of 30 to 40 minutes. Everything is great inventive specials to intrigue you and your taste buds, including southwestern spins to their meals. Great variety of egg Benedicts.

This place was just as everyone says, great menu, great food. Eclectic and has a nice hometown feel. However this is not a place that I would frequent normally, maybe on special occasions. Why? Price alone. I am not saying it is not worth the price, I believe the quality of the food is, but spending $40 on a breakfast... More

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 eclectic with a Mexican flair. I will... 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.
