I ordered two salads to takeaway, a Mediterranean and an International. They were both good. We preferred the International. They were made fairly quickly while I waited. The indoor and outdoor seating both looked nice and the service was friendly.

We went for breakfast and just thought it was ok. The eggs were over cooked, and the toast was under cooked. We might try again since we have heard good things about this place. Maybe it was just an off day for the cook. It was a little warm in there.

Inside very busy so we checked in at the front register and sat outside. Needles to say a couple came in behind us and did the same they were immediately brought menus and waters. We just waited it out patiently. The waitress who are so disorganized they don't know who is there and what to do next. Enough said, because... More

Always a must when I am visiting family in the area. The menu offering makes it difficult to choose just one item so our standard is to get a few dishes to share. Two of my favorite breakfast dishes are the Crab Meat Eggs Benedict and the Banana Peanut Butter Nutella French toast. All dishes are served in generous portions... More

On Father's Day, I took my kids and wife here for breakfast. It was a packed crowd. I ordered two eggs over easy with sausage and potatoes. The eggs were over cooked - the sausage was awesome and the potatoes were ok. My two kids ordered the Mickey Mouse pancakes. It arrived as one pancake and one piece of bacon.... More

We enjoyed our lunch. Great food and solid service. The staff actually covers each other through the experience which is unique and solid. Had the 1/2 Italian wedding soup 1/2 beef French dip sandwich. Wifey had chick salad sand and sweet pot fries. Everything was great. We met multiple servers and they rocked!

One of our regular places when we're in this part of town. Nice ambiance, imaginative menu, out side dining is away from the parking lot. Food quality is slipping a bit. Waitress explained poor quiche crust "that's what happens when you reheat" pancakes a little doughy. Oh well.

we were in the area and spotted this place. It seems to have a shared patio seating outside with other establishments. We both got a burger, cooked to perfection that was huge and a good value for the money. They offer a variety of sides, potato salad, coleslaw, fires, and onion rings and sweet potato fires which is what we... More
