How long does it take to make pans upon pans of French toast, pancakes, biscuits and gravy, home fries, sausage, and fruit salad to sit out to be ready for a 7am open? I don't know - but certainly not at 7am. Who knows how long in advance the pre-prepared buffet was made, but the most of the baked items were soggy or close to inedible. Omelets and waffles, however, were made fresh on site at a table in front of you. There did seem to be a bit of a language barrier because I ended up with the same ingredients that my husband asked for. Service was great to start with, but petered off when it got a little busier. Considering the quality of the food, it felt like a rip-off. With tip, the tab for 2 of us came to $42.
I'd go two stars but even with the wrong ingredients, the omelet was good. This place might be perfectly fine if you could get food prepared freshly, just for you. On Sunday morning though, the only choice is the buffet. Precious little else resembles a diner nearby. Most other breakfast places are of the coffee house variety. The coffee and tea were good and plentiful, but sadly not enough to make this a winning score.
