“Birthday Lunch gone wrong”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Was out with the girls for a birthday of antiqu-ing ang lunch on a Saturday in September. My daughter had patronized this establishment for lunch and was excited to take us there. We pulled in at 12:45 and the parking lot was about half full. We walked in and were told to sit at any "clean" table. We all got iced teas and the server was friendly and attentive. When she came to take our order, she informed us that they only serve breakfast on weekends. I commented that the sign on the door says breakfast and lunch 7 days a week. She shrugged. We ordered our breakfast and it was ok, although the french toast was hard and dry. After we ate and paid (they don't accept credit cards) we used the restroom. It was a disaster. Such a mess. My daughter commented to a server that the restroom was in need of attention and was told "We close in 30 minutes, we'll take care of it then".

“Best Coffee in Chico”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

I eat here way too often. The food is healthy and tasty. It is an uncommonly good breakfast. Service is fast and friendly. I usually sit at the counter and chat with the baristas. Ask them about the specials. And: If you want good coffee in Chico, this is definitely the place to go.

“Interesting Breakfast Selections”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2012

The granola berry pancakes were good as was the side of fruit. The breakfast burritos with black beans was less so. Beans were not hot and the burritos were bland. The salsa was pretty good but pretty bland. Without the salsa poured over both the beans and burritos I would have even less satisfied with my breakfast. House coffee was good so I saw no need to try any of the specialty brews but there were several. Nearly all egg dishes had scrambled eggs. No omelets.
