“Big plate! Average price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013 via mobile

This was a Sunday visit it was busy but no one was waiting for a table. I had the frittata special it was excellent and way to much food to eat I took half the plate home which is always nice. I will definently will be headed back. This restaurant is on the top of my list for breakfast.

“Best Place for Breakfast in GR”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

It's a great local restaurant that serves just breakfast and lunch. It's not a big place, even though they have put on an addition to the place to increase seating, but I think they have been smart about not getting too big and letting the quality go down. Any good breakfast place on a weekend, especially a Sunday, plan to wait to eat. During the week this place isn't crazy busy, and even on Sundays the wait isn't terrible and worth it. CASH ONLY, but they do have an atm in there, and a Chase atm is a quick walk away. I've always had good service, though there is one older female waitress there that can come off a little harsh at times, but still provides good service. I've had the veggie hash, westsider scramble, monster quesdilla, even one of their pancake concoctions with granola, bananas, and whipped cream, all delish. I've had lunch there a couple of times, getting sandwiches, those are good too, but I do prefer breakfast there.

“Bring your appetite!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

What a fun place for breakfast! The food is unbelievable (albeit not super healthy). The homefries are fabulous -- lots of unusual breakfast items. My son had a pancake with bacon and sausage IN IT! I had a breakfast burrito. Make sure you plan a workout during the day to workoff the food. But boy was it good. Oh, they only take cash and have an ATM on-site.

“One of the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013 via mobile

Been coming here for a few years now. And I gotta say a lot of food fire your money you'll never leave hungry. Only downside, it's to small and there's always people waiting.
