“Best Kept Secret for Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2011

We stumbled upon this really difficult place to find. It is not only at the side of a strip mall but once you get inside you must go to the very back. Believe me....it is worth the effort. It is tiny mom and pop place, only about 4 booths and a few bar stools. It was obviously a local favorite since we were the only ones not called by name.

The menu was great....I ordered a 2 eggs, potatoes, and sausage and my husband ordered the eggs benedict. All of the sauces are homemade and beyond wonderful but kept a secret by the cook. On Mondays, the benedict changes to yummy choices like crab and spinach, crab and avacado, etc.. Plus, the cost was SO reasonable. Don't miss this place.
