Went for breakfast at the new location. It was every bit as good as before. Originally they were not going to serve full breakfasts. I’m so glad they changed their mind. It opens at 8 and the menu is almost like before with daily specials.

Delicious foods- creative rolls and sandwiches. Snack bites are also of great variety. The Restaurant will cater out for functions- they did at the neighboring Zeph's for a recent event! Reasonably priced menu.

The food prices went up, when this owner took over the food concession stand. The available food products changed. Most changes were not good. Gone was the bone in chicken wings, baked potatoes and a few other popular items. At least, they supply the prepackaged...More
