Fresh pressed coffee was served! Food was reasonably priced. Servings were of an adequate size (not too much). One side for my egg breakfast was sliced apples. Staff was friendly and professional. The only glitch was when I asked for butter for my buttermilk waffle....More

As my wife has to eat gluten free we were looking forward to eat at this place. The food and the service were excellent. Try the egg benedict.

I and my wife alway enjoyed eating here. She had the Lentil on a waffle sandwich. I had the mushroom chip burger. If you don't mind enjoying your food, instead of woofing it down. You enjoyed the flavors of good healthy foods.

This place never disappoints! I always feel good after a meal here. The chicken and waffles are amazing with the homemade hot sauce. The staff is excellent. Make sure to sign up for their rewards program.
