Best breakfast.

There's only several places in West like to eat for breakfast and this is one of the best. The food is good, location is a little difficult to find parking, other than that it's a good place to stop.

The fact that it is always crowded is probably a great indication of the quality of the meals. There is a very nice variety on the menu and the portions are plenty. Waiting is part... More

Went here with my daughter. Waited 45 minutes to be seated on a Saturday morning for breakfast. Being from NYC if we had to wait this long we would have walked out. The food was decent but not spectacular. I'd suggest reservations if you go. It wasn't that good to be worth the wait.

We love coming here for meetings with friends because the service is great and the choices are excellent. It is quiet enough that you can have a conversation with the party you are with. :)

Convenient in the summer next to the farmers market and trader Joe's. Reasonably priced and lots of options. Sometimes it is a little crowded. The food is tasty as expected.
