Delish!

Loved the breakfast burrito, and the service was great. Feels like a breezy Parisian cafe. You can sit outdoors in a greenery-filled courtyard or at a funky counter, diner-style.

Stayed in the hotel, which was quite nice. After a long wait for a table (granted, this was a Sunday and the cafe seems very popular), we were seated. Then there was another really long wait for our food. Then our food was served, but the order was wrong. Another wait, but we did eat the hash browns and toast... More

The biscuits and gravy with eggs and hash browns were superb! The veggie benedict was excellent also. Nice to sit outside when it is warm enough. Katie does an amazing job with terrific food!

We found this gem of a spot on one of our walks from our hotel. We stopped in for breakfast thinking we would grab a quick bite. We were seated out side in the court yard. What a lovely surprise. It was quiet, serene and beautiful. A perfect spot for a relaxing breakfast! The wait staff was attentive. The size... More

We went here on Sunday morning after a late night at Summer Fest. We went into this diner that was located in our hotel. At first we were a little skeptical but I saw the reviews here so we thought we'd give it a shot. The menu had some unique breakfast items. I ordered the pork schnitzel with spaezel. They... More

We headed to the Plaza after a night at Summerfest on our way out do the city and this was the perfect spot. We sat outside in the beautiful garden to have our meal. I opted for the breakfast club which consisted of prosciutto ham, feta. Avocado, lettuce, egg and chipotle mayonnaise within multi grain bread and with potatoes on... More

This restaurant is in the Plaza hotel. Neat old art deco cafe with counter in the cafe. Outdoor area between wings of the hotel is very nice. Excellent breakfasts.

We had a fantastic breakfast here complimented by exceptionally good service and a great ambiance. All the locals kept recommending this place for breakfast and we are glad we finally took their advice. Choosing from the interesting menu turned out to be the hardest part of breakfast. I ordered baked oatmeal with apples, pecans and ginger yogurt YUMMY! I have... More
