Sunday morning, there was a wait. I figured if so many people were waiting, it must be good. I was correct! Friendly servers and excellent food. If you don't wait, someone else will be happy to take your spot. So just wait. You will be...More

They have amazing pancakes. Quick service. Everything I’ve ever tried is good. It’s very small and expect to wait on the weekends. But it’s worth it. We’ve been here at least 15 times by now and will keep coming.

Very, very good food at this place. A lot of classic breakfast items to choose from. Plus the decor is fun. It’s like if your grandma’s house turned into a restaurant.

This is our favorite place to go for breakfast and is in our walk able neighborhood. If you want to eat there on weekends, come EARLY. It gets packed fast although there is free coffee while you wait outside or inside. I love the 70's...More

I ordered the vegetarian burrito and the sauce on the top was to-die-for! It was tangy and delicious, and not too much. I could only eat 1/2 of it, but it was fantastic. The service was excellent, and coffee was never empty! Highly recommend. I...More

Call and fiind out. As the others have said, it is very small. We sat outside.....I don't think you are going to want to do that now!
