Organic, fresh, flavorful and wide menu selection- it doesn't get better. The omelet was the best, the chicken, bean corn salad spectacular. The Day smoothie was so good. The interior design was so clean cool and inviting. Very popular so be ready for a wait.

I am a 12 year old The food was great and on a Father's Day that is the place to be. I had the fruit crepes and they were delicious. The yogurt there was amazing and there Granola is the best in town. I truly advise you to go to enjoy a great meal.🙂

We have eaten here quite a few times and have NEVER had a bad meal. I love their twist on Eggs Benedict and the fact that they serve fresh green salad with a lot of their eggs.... More

Great family oriented place. Kids had chocolate pancakes and real squeezed orange juice. I had the egg sandwich and it was excellent.

Creative selections and also healthy options such as a choice of egg whites or cholesterol free eggs for your omelette. I love that they leave a pot of hot coffee on your table, which I drank every last drop of - good coffee. I ordered steel cut oatmeal with fresh strawberries and bananas, it comes with a little pitcher of... More

Trifecta breakfast has a nice twist with a choice of pancakes. Server recommended banana granola (I believe) crunch pancake - nice touch! Sweet enough to not need syrup and the whole grain granola gave the pancake a nice texture. Worth visiting!
