Food was great. I had the corn beef hash. Wheat berry toast was yummy ! Service was very good despite a 15 minute wait at 10:30 AM on a Wednesday. Shops nearby provide a distraction during the wait and pagers work through the shopping areas.

The food was good, the service was good and the atmosphere is very enjoyable. We all had breakfast and coffee. I would have to say that none of our meals were amazing but it was a good breakfast.

Decided to try Over Easy Cafe for breakfast. About a 20 minute wait which was fine. Waiting means it must be a good place right? Huge selection of breakfast options. Needs more vegan options though. French toast was great and home style potatos were seasoned...More
