OK, it's a Patty Melt, but made with thick-cut, swirled light&dark rye toast, 1/2lb. beef patty and cheddar cheese, with Kettle Chips on the side. AMAZING!

This is a busy place with a poor location and is alway packed. Why, the food is so very good. The service is good. They serve the best bacon I have ever eaten and the portions are giant. Not the place for a diet for sure but what really good food.

It took me a while to find this place. It's tucked away behind Lucky's in the Barnyard with lots of little shops. It was worth the search. Had the Veggie Egg Benedict with avocado, tomato & spinach and delicious red potatoes on the side. Add a Mimosa and you've got a great breakfast. Want to go back and try the... More

We make it a point to stop here for breakfast at least once each time we visit the area. Their breakfasts are unsurpassed, and each creation is prepared to perfection.

Located in the LOWER level of the Barnyard Shopping Village - below Bay Bikes. The back stairs face Highway One. Since 1977, this charming, family owned restaurant has been serving breakfast and lunch made from the freshest of ingredients lovingly prepared by an expert chef. From Eggs Benedict to made-to-order omelettes to the best Huevos Rancheros around, it's impossible to beat their award-winning breakfasts. The restaurant is available for private parties in the evening. Enjoy your meal inside next to the fireplace or outside on remodeled patio. Pet friendly! We hope to see you soon.
