Name says it best. Simple but really good.

Loved this place, great meals and service. Extremely crowded at lunch...we sat at the counter where the service was excellent.

This cozy restaurant features breakfast and lunches that regularly have people lining up outside the door to get in. It's known for fresh ingredients and good service. I love the outside seating but find the inside quite noisy, as it's usually crowded and the acoustics make holding a conversation difficult; the whole experience is not as relaxing as it could...

All I can say is....WOW! My husband and I enjoyed a really fabulous breakfast last weekend here. Exceptional menu. My husband had the Korean breakfast bowl which was out of this world. Great textures and perfect flavor combinations with kale, spinach, mushrooms, kimchi and a perfectly friend egg on top. I had the quinoa and corn fritters, also very, very... More

Delicious food and very creative recipes. Fresh ingredients. Be adventurous and try something different if you dare. You won;t be sorry. They also have more standard meals for the less daring diner. We liked it so well that we went back a second day. We were there for breakfast on a week day. There was plenty of seating when we... More

The underwhelming decor may fool you at first, but you will discover a comfortable and cheerfully staffed place to sit and relax while you enjoy a good breakfast. Table and counter seating are equally as welcoming.

Maybe it was because it was so busy, I didn't think it was as good as last year. So many servers running around directing people. I ordered the Chop Salad, and I'm not sure there was any dressing on it. It was easier to eat it, than to try to wave down the server to ask about the dressing. I... More

This is our go to breakfast spot. We enjoyed sitting outside today. The service is fast and friendly. My husband loved the eggs Benedict and my son enjoyed his potato omelette.

Living an hour south of Lake Geneva we often take our Corvette for a "day trip" to Lake Geneva. Always wanted to try this restaurant but, our friends we were travelling with had their dog with them. We were glad to know that the restaurant had a outdoor sitting area where you can bring your dog. I'm sorry I did... More

I had the smoked trout BLT and my wife had the chicken chop salad. Very good and uncluttered food in keeping with the theme here. Service was prompt and pleasant for a late lunch on the patio on a blissful day meant for strolling Lake Geneva. (I'll be back for the bakery when my wife isn't looking.)
