Yes! Wow! Good service and even better food. My bread pudding with eggs and sausage were good - however - my husbands "California Eggs Benedict" were over the top with avocado and crab cakes. We'll be back again, and again and again....

Awesome location in downtown South Haven as we walked to breakfast. Spacious well lit but not real inspiring inside.

Fantastic eggs but over cooked, dry hash browns were lazily prepared and stored in bulk on the grill. Server had very... More

We had the Turkey Cranberry Crunch Sandwich and Jalapeño Corn Beef Sandwich-both were very good and you can tell they use the freshest of ingredients. They refilled our drinks without us asking and were very informative... More

Stopped by chance on a rainy Saturday night in October while we were looking for a place for coffee after dinner in St. Joseph. What a find! The name is a misnomer if you're thinking that it is your basic family restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner - they have chefs and their menu changes daily and is posted... More

We had an early afternoon "breakfast" on a weekday and it was great! Got right in and the server was friendly, attentive, patient, and very helpful. The atmosphere is very attractive and relaxing to be in...there is a warmth to the place. Food very good. The California Omelette was huge and quite delicious. Nice fresh veggies inside. Steel cut oatmeal... More

Great breakfast for everyone. Fresh ingredients and large portions. Perfect for any hungry man. Just peaceful and perfect for a family with two young children. Wonderful experience.
