We ate there twice by recommendations but found it average at best so we do not ever go there. There are too many good breakfast spots in the county.

I have eaten here for many years. A great locals place to start your day. This place gets busy in the morning and you can expect a short wait time occasionally. If you are a homemade type breakfast this is the place for you. Good service and reasonably priced.

This is by far one of my favorite places to eat in summit county, especially for Sunday brunch!! The staff are friendly and work fast, and the food is delicious! I've actually only tried their breakfast, including The Bronco (my favorite), any omelette, and their skillets. The portions are big and they always have a special to try. Prices are... More

Best cafe in the area. Always crowded but well worth the wait. Food is excellent and portions are generous. We always go here when in the area. SAT and Sunday are two days you will have to wait 15 to 20 minutes usually. I recommend this place and prices are very reasonable. Breakfast is my favorite.

This has got to be where the local's go! Fantastic food. Nice staff, coffee cup is always FULL. It is a very small restaurant with 'cozy' seating (meaning on top of each other) but that's perfect for this type of place. The staff is fast and they are all business when it comes to getting you seated, taking your order,... More

We stopped by on a Sunday morning at about 930-10am. The line was long, wait time was about 20 minutes, and parking was terrible. But, the food and service was great. Well worth the wait and hassle!

Our food was very delicious. Our only complaint is that cardiac issues mean ten fat grams a day. We cannot have omelets made with oil, only the least little but if cooking spray.

My husband loved his omelette. I wasn't crazy about my frittata as there was very little egg and it was overpowered by all of the vegetables. A little goes a long way.
