Had breakfast here. Food is excellent. The fresh breads and muffins are unbelievable. Menu is extensive to please all breakfast tastes. The disappointment is the coffee. Weak!

Open early, quick service, good food, fair prices. Breakfast is a winner here. Just be prepared to wait in line on Saturday and Sunday if you don't get there early.
