The place is situated in a strip mall setting, but don't be fooled, it is quite cute on the inside for a casual breakfast. There is also a little covered patio with a few outside tables. I had eggs Benedict which was served with potatoes and a side of fresh mixed fruit and it was lovely. Hubby had Pancakes with... More

What a terrific experience. The strawberry crepes were delicious. The owner was very friendly and spent time talking with us about what to do around Reno. Really cute place with delicious food. Highly recommend.

I went for breakfast and once again was disappointed in the quality of food in Reno, in general. I ordered the "Pig Breakfast for $7.95". My complaint the bacon was greasy as well as the sausage. Does anyone in Reno know you should pat the grease off with a paper towel? The pancakes tasted pre-made and reheated. My companion was... More

Jackie and Don and their staff are very friendly and the food was amazing! I had the strawberry chicken salad and clam chowder and it was out of this world! Their family home environment is very welcoming.

Counter service with order brought to your table. Nice menu of standard breakfasts and omelettes served with well executed potatoes and toast. Vegetarian omelettes were perfectly prepared with excellent mix of mushrooms, onions, and spinach. Self-serve coffee and nice outdoor seating. Very popular with locals. A bit out of the way, but definitely worth it. One of the best breakfasts... More

We ate breakfast here two days in a row while in Reno, and both times, it was excellent. The prices were extremely reasonable, and the food was fantastic. On day two, I had stuffed french toast, and it was one of the best breakfasts I've ever had in my life. I travel all the time and eat in tons of... More

Cute little place to grab breakfast. A little over priced but going out to eat is always over priced.

So tired of fast food in the AM. Great food reasonably priced. Clearly a place where the regulars go. I had the Pig, pancakes and eggs. The bacon was the best. You can also phone in orders. They are open early but close at 2:30.
