Known for large breakfast portions available all day and night. Excellent corned beef hash and omlets. Haven't ordered other entrees because of the wide range of breakfast offerings. Service usually good but need to hire new people led to mix ups on last visit.

I don't think you would. It is busy but there wasn't a queue. There is seating inside and out. Enjoy!
