Great find in the city. Plenty of fresh fruit, and quick coffee refills (I hate having an empty cup of coffee). The food was great and plentiful. Fortunately we weren't in a hurry though, as the line was long in the morning. We decided to wait until the breakfast crowd had passed, and had a lovely late breakfast.

We read about this place and wanted to give it a try, we are so glad we did, we did have to wait for a table but not for long at all everything is really organised you pop your name and how many in your party and they call you ASAP. The staff were so friendly and could not do... More

Always a line here, so get there as early as you can. It's worth the wait. The fruit is amazing. Look around at other diners' plates, and you'll see how big and gorgeous the fruit is. Yum! Kids love the hot chocolate too. The line is long, but moves quickly. Put your name in on a paper on the front... More

Traveling from out of town. It was so close to our hotel and saw the great reviews so we had to go. If I lived in-town, I would eat at this place every weekend - amazing. Had the crab omelette one day and the eggs benedict the next. Both were fabulous. There will be a wait, but it will be... More

Our expectations were really high for this place based on reviews. I honestly don't understand the hype. Yes, you get a huge portion of hash browns. But they were just hash browns. Everything else was good, but nothing out of the ordinary. We went to Mama's a few days later, and were much more impressed there!

Huge portions (I shared), fresh, delicious, fast friendly service, worth waiting for. The crab and avocado omelet was chock-full of crab! Fruit salads had deliciously sweet berries and melon pieces. Went with group and all thoroughly enjoyed their breakfasts.

Just around the corner from our hotel and paid a visit for Saturday morning breakfast on recommendation. There's a wait on tables (we waited around 10 mins, so not long) from mid morning on. Service was friendly and efficient and breakfast was amazing. My wife had the Audrey Hepburn - enough fruit for a family of 12! I had French... More

I read about this place and couldn't wait to try it myself! Not disappointed at all! Like everyone has previously stated, HUGE portions! The hashbrowns made "Hollywood" style are great!

Found this on our last morning. Amazing breakfast. Way too big of portions are served. The Hawaiian omelette was scrumptious. The while wheat toast was fresh. Our server was very hurried and at times seemed put off by our requests but otherwise great experience. Only waited 10 minutes on a Thursday morning at 9:30am

Hi Scott. We're happy to know you enjoyed your breakfast. Thank you for the compliments and we apologize if your server was hurried. We try to be efficient but polite and please accept our apology if that was not the case. We will work on that and make sure it doesn't happen moving forward. Thanks again for the great review...
