I was here 7 years ago with my husband and we loved it. Now, not so much. I try to go to local places rather than chains but this place has gone down hill. Needs some sprucing up...decor, service, and food. Coffee should be great but was flavored water and not even that hot nor were the eggs. Sorry it... More

The service is quick and the food great - can eat inside or outside - big variety on the menu with lots of specials offered up everyday. Always a treat to eat there. A large and very interesting Mexican supermarket across the street with interesting food and amazing prices that we go to afterwards.

Nothing better than a delicious breakfast on a cool patio, prompt, polite service and a perfectly prepared meal! Accidental find, but now on the top of the most do again list! We had steak and eggs, eggs florentine and eggs benedict. Delicious! Makes my mouth water just remembering the moment!

A real local place with a throw back atmosphere. Waitresses are our oder central casting and the customers as well. Hearty portions, lots of choices.

I enjoyed their corned beef hash with poached eggs, perfectly cooked, fresh fruit cup with great selection of fruits, rye toast with Smuckers jams, and a decent enough coffee. Server, who had been there 20 years, didn't know why this dish is called The Shamrock. I couldn't figure it out either, certainly nothing Irish about it. Makes a great breakfast... More

Great little gem that serves breakfast all day. My mom and I were in the area for Desert Trip and so were having a hard time getting up and out in the morning early enough to catch breakfast at our restaurant. They have a lot of variety on their menu and serve big portions. They coffee is typical diner coffee,... More

Excellent service and great food. This was our first breakfast in the area and we may not try anywhere else. There were 4 of each having a different breakfast and all of them were delicious with plenty of food.

Tried this wonderful local establishment for breakfast. We had the Shamrock (poached-eggs, over corned-beef hash), Sausage breakfast burrito, and sausage and cheese omelet. All three breakfasts were delicious. Service was also fast and friendly. When in the area, we will be back.

This is a nice family type place. The portions are large and tasty. I am new in town and have eaten here once a week. they are very accommodating as I have to be on a special diet. Seems like a local hangout as the wait staff are always getting updates from the gentlemen at the half round counter. Love... More
