Better than average breakfast food. The staff is great. I don't recommend the corned beef hash which is listed as a favorite. I had to send mine back..chewy and fatty. I ended up with eggs Benedict which were excellent. My husband's Western Omlette was good.

My wife loves the breakfasts here. I like the menu variety. Huge portions . Good food and good service. Whenever we are in town, it's our favorite early in the day spot.
