I went there for brunch and and had an omelette. It was a bit massive with 4 eggs but I managed to eat it all. The service was fast and nice. I loved the overall vibe of the place. I would definitely return.

This is the Midwest, people, and portions are huge: For breakfast I had a sort of hearty, everything-but-the-kitchen sink bowl of eggs, rice... More

Good food at a good brunch price. Their bruch specials are usually tasty and unique. Service is what you expect for the area...no frills, no pretentions, just down to earth.

The food was pretty tasty. However, the servers were very stuck up and didn't give good service. They just sat there reading a newspaper! It seems like all the miracle is done in the kitchen without servers making the actual experience enjoyable.
