We came in on a lazy morning. The 3 of us ordered different things and everything was good. The relaxed diner atmosphere was just what I needed. Good menu options and good service too.

This restaurant its small but its really good. Their omelettes are good as well as the crumble coffee cake. We try to go early because it gets full since early in the morning, but good thing the line moves fast. Their service is very goo.

I thought the feel of the restaurant was cute and the cleanliness was on par. However, I was disappointed with the food. It was average. Boyfriend and I ordered 2-3-3 and split. There was plenty of food! I ate the 2 pancakes and he had the bacon and eggs. The pancakes were huge, fluffy, and sweet, but nothing spectacular. Kinda... More

This place is great! Killer service, killer food, and INCREDIBLE diner coffee. I say diner coffee because it's different from a chain coffee place, different from a cafe, different from home brewed. Place is top notch. Glad I stopped!

Great french toast, waffles, eggs, and grilled cheese. And the service was prompt and friendly. Be sure to go early to avoid wait -- small seating area fills up by 9. The portions are big.
