The service was timely and friendly and very a combating for our 1 year old. The blueberry waffles were so good I almost forgot to put syrup on. My husband had the meat lovers omelet and was very happy with it!

I love supporting local and I've had dine in before, so when we found ourselves stuck for a lunch during a renovation at our rental property we called in an order for pick up. On time, hot, delicious. Defiantly will do this again.
