Delicious meals made fresh to order. Eclectic menu, tends toward healthy choices - something for everyone. Very popular, especially in summer - gets a little crazy. Great servers friendly and they manage the crowds very well.

This place always has great options for breakfast. It allows you to be healthy yet satisfied at the same time. There’s lots of choices and they have a great cup of coffee. The fresh squeeze juice options are always good for the kids.

We went here the first morning after arriving in the US. The location is a typical American diner. The staff was very friendly. All the food was delicious. It was exactly what we expected. We would definitely recommend this location.

We normally go for a breakfast and love the eggs and breakfast usuals. Today we enjoyed a lunch - with amazingly good Pastrami on Rye. The meat was tasty, served with a fabulous bread (as usual) and crispy fries. So good. I recommend it.

This is a great place for a good, local sourced breakfast. I loved their raspberry cream cheese stuffed French toast. They have some great vegan choices too.
