“Excellent Breakfast Spot!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

This place was absolutely packed on Friday morning when we showed up. We were recommended to try the food here and we were not disappointed. All three of us ordered different meals and every one of them looked and tasted fantastic! I highly recommend putting this on your list of breakfast stops when you are in SLT.

“Order Michelle's Omlette”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

My husband and I had breakfast two mornings while staying at the Marriott, it is literally right out the front door, so convenient. The staff was overly friendly and helpful. The food was delicious. I would also recommend the huevos del driftwood and the fresh squeezed oj. Get up early and avoid the line. We were there by 8am and had no wait, but drove by later and seen the lines.

“Best Biscuit with gravy and potato pancake”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

Unique in the sense that you could order 1/2 if you are a light eater and the price is a little cheaper than the full portion in a touristy area. . The full portion was just right ,not really big that we really don't need to order the half. Good customer service. Food tastes good. Don't really care much for the muffin or the french toast. The potato pancake was awesome and sauce not too overwhelming too. The omelette good.

“Great Family Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

I have been here before alone and really liked it so it was my first choice for breakfast when here with the family. I love the warm friendly atmosphere and the service with a smile. We all found something we liked and it was delicious and reasonably priced. Don't miss this charming little cafe.

“Great breakfast, well worth the wait!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013 via mobile

Our party of 5 had to wait for about an hour before we could be seated. It's very busy here, buy the breakfasts are definitely worth the wait! Good range of choices and friendly staff. They could do with employing a few more staff tho.
