I was so pleased with my meal! I can't to go back! I ate the single happiness with steak and was not disappointed! Just the right amount of food with amazing flavors! It's a total hipster joint, but don't let that throw you off if it's not the vibe you're used to. Go in and try the food, I guarantee... More

Great selection of pancakes & egg dishes. Most of the egg scrambles are vegetarian, but you can still get meat. Most have cheese but it was great not having it overpower everything else - often it's smothered and high in fat but it was just detectable. Most egg dishes come with rosemary potatoes although i had one with grilled zucchini... More

We have been here a couple of times and generally tend to beat the rush… The service is always excellent, everyone is extremely friendly. If you go mid-morning or later, be prepared to wait. The food is delicious; two of our favorites being the avocado scramble and french toast! If you have not enjoyed this local restaurant, I would take... More

They have homemade rosemary bread which was subtle and delightful. We both ordered the Roast Beef Hash breakfast which is rosemary potatoes, eggs, and grilled steak pieces with 2 slices of rosemary bread and a horseradish cream sauce. My husband had an Arnold Palmer, while I had a wonderful chamomile tea. There is a bit of a wait because they... More

Love their food. Always leave happy. Ordered the avocado scramble and it was delicious. Potatoes are done just right. The side of fruit was fresh with great variety. They only take cash but have an ATM on site.

This a old fashioned breakfast only place. The menu is varied from usual eggs and meat, served in a burrito or tamale style. We had a scramble with artichoke, and roast beef hash. Both were excellent! While the rest. was very busy the service was great. This a cash only establishment. They do have a free ATM.

Well, with this place a pancake isn't just a pancake. They have many different choices and you can order them as singles. Keep in mind you must bring cash because it's cash and carry. Great servers that work with you to save you money when you order. Coffee is brewed by the cup and there are no free refills of... More

We had yoghurt with granola and pancakes. There is a little terrace so we sat outside even though it was Winter it was very nice. The waitress would come every five minutes to ask if every thing was okay and if we needed more water, I guess that's an american thing we're not really used to, but it kinda annoyed... More

Parking is a problem - but only because the restaurant is so popular. Be patient and courteous and you will be rewarded with a delicious and unique breakfast. Drip coffee - strong. Menu choices vary from healthy to indulgent. Every time I plan to get something healthy/delicious like the Zen Breakfast with the yummy ginger-soy sauce. Then, the waitstaff walks... More
