Very good for breakfast or lunch. The omelets are awesome as are the burgers. Prices are reasonable considering the quality of the product.

We had super good food, small place, so if you don't like being real close to your neighbor then don't go there.

We arrived 5 minutes later to find out they couldn't sit a large party due to a larger party was already at the table. This wasn't the reason for the bad... More

Rarely do I not check for reviews prior to dining but took the recommendations of a friendly local on this place. If I'd read the reviews (on another site) I might've skipped this place but glad we didn't. We came here for breakfast and wish we knew about this place on Day 1 of 2. The service was prompt and...

The warm Arizona sun will warm the faces and shoulders of the many tourists who take the opportunity to enjoy delicious food in a delightful outdoor setting. Good service by a friendly wait-staff and one never... More

What a view and a really great breakfast menu.You can eat outside which is a plus for me and your four legged friends are welcome on the patio. We have eaten there many times and find the quality of the food and service is best earlier in the day. We try to be there by 10 at the latest.
