A breakfast choices are good and hearty.The service is great and the food is good. Try the many omelettes, yummy. The coffee is good and free flowing. Can be crowded with a line to get in.

Friends and I stopped in for breakfast. Busy that morning, but we were seated quickly. Friendly, straight forward, old school gem. Family friendly. Quick service. Nice big mugs for coffee! Basic breakfast fare, but yummy and reasonably priced.

This place is OK, but nothing special, certainly not worthy of the many 5-star reviews here. My daughter and I went on a Sunday morn during Spring break. Yes, we had to wait to get in, about 10 minutes. This is a small place with...More
