Great Breakfast Spot

First time eating here after 5 years of driving past it. Went in at 7 am on a Saturday morning. Open sign wasn't on yet but the frequent customers already were walking in and taking a seat :). We took a seat and started looking at the menu. Looking around there were maybe 8 tables and then a few... read more

Place was packed which I thought was a good sign, now I am not sure why it was. The southwestern classic was very bland which was shocking with all that it had in it. Even a healthy dose of hot sauce was not enough to make me eat more than half. Service was slow as well but like I said,... More

This is a small place, so don't go at a busy time. I think they are open between 7am and 2:00 pm. They are wonderful, great food, everything I have there has been good. I hoping to try the Sunday morning breakfast. Hamburgers are super, scones are large enough for two. I love this little place, wished they served dinner.... More

We eat here quite a bit because we are locals. It's great home cooking, made right every time. A few of our favorites are the garden scramble and the granola pancakes. It's super popular so be prepared to wait if you come during the hot times like 9am. Early or later is better!

This is a great little place with home style cooking and great service. It is tiny, though, so if you go at 9am on a Saturday the wait could be 40minutes or more. My favorite is the veggie scramble and the granola pancakes. The standard bacon and eggs is awesome too. If you venture in, you'll love it.

This little dive has been a gem to find but many others have discovered it as well. Janet will cook how YOU want it using only the freshest ingredients. We call in our orders as the place tends to get crowded very quickly with limited space. Our "go-to" breakfast is her Whole Wheat pancake with cinnamon granola mix-in. Pour some... More

Sunshine Cafe is a small diner that serves breakfast and lunch (no dinner). We come here almost exclusively for breakfast, which is very good. Nice pancakes and they will fix your eggs in any number and by any method you can dream up.

The first thing you should know is there is no acoustical dampers. The place is really loud. We went there a dozen times but many times we were unwilling to wait. There are not many tables. When we first started going the wait staff was really good but they sure were busy. The food was good and they got it... More

Breakfast is a pretty basic meal, so when a place does the little things well it makes a big difference. I had an egg white Denver omelet (bacon added) with hash browns and wheat toast. My hashbrowns were perfect. They weren't fried in a slab, with only the top and bottom crisp, but they were cooked evenly, salted nicely, and... More

Small little café with limited seating and you may have to wait for few minutes. I can see why, really good food.
