I hear the waits are an hour long just to get inside during peak season. Going in late April for breakfast, it was easy to find a table but business was brisk. Gazpacho and veggie breakfast burrito was generous and delicious. Great coffee, really friendly...More

I am a breakfast person and they definitely delivered! Huge portions, good coffee. Great for families and friendly atmosphere. Definitely check them out if you want a hearty breakfast. They also have lunch, but we didn't check the menu for lunch items.

Everything on the menu is great and you will never leave hungry! Order the blueberry pancakes for a real treat. The service is excellent and the staff members are friendly and efficient.

Very quaint place. Great breakfast with friendly staff. Located in the Armand's circle but doesn't have the feel or overpriced nature of a tourist trap. Highly recommend!

Open for lunch and breakfast. We had breakfast and coffee. Food price was slightly high but not unreasonable, but coffee was $3 a cup. Service was acceptable.

There are no steps to get into the restaurant. It is in a little shopping mall strip. You should have absolutely no problems at all.
