Had lunch with my family - very good! Very casual atmosphere! Great menu choices. We all liked what we ate! Serve breakfast, lunch and beverages (alcoholic). We will definitely be returning!

Plenty of seating inside and out....great food with Breakfast served 24/7...holds a liquor license so we enjoyed a great sorbet mimosa...Two of us got in and out in less than 45 minutes and our bill was 13.00 each...Try the pancakes or the grilled cheese with bacon...Best grilled cheese i've ever had...

I've been to this restaurant twice in the last two weeks. Both time, enjoyed the greatest lunch I've had in years. Everything is so fresh and tasty. They have fantastic service, good sized portions, and are really accommodating for Celiacs. Love this place! Incredible burgers, salads, and breakfast! Highly recommend!!

Stopped on here for lunch. They were busy. Considering this fact, it still took a while to get someone to take our order. Food was ok.

This was an okay place to eat. Not overly special. I had scrambled eggs which tasted odd as I believe they cooked them on the same grill as something else. The waffle was light and fluffy but the maple syrup came in a store-bought Aunt Jemima bottle. The turkey patties were fine. Not spicy. Service was excellent!

This a great spot for breakfast. The omelet are superb and they have the very best pancakes in town, bar none. The service is excellent and the prices are fair.

I was driving back to the airport (MSP) with a coworker, and he pulled up TripAdvisor to find a place for lunch. This was number one, and I can see why!! Great food, fast service, and friendly atmosphere. I had the special- steak wrap with hand-cut fries, and it was beyond what I expected. Totally knocked it out of the... More

One of many good diners in St. Paul. They had good, fast & friendly service, food was good but not extraordinary. We had omelets, hash browns and marble rye. All was prepared well. Coffee was decent but not a reason to make this a destination. They did have some intriguing pastries but we didnt give them a try. Good reasin... More

This is a very pleasant and appealing place with great food. We arrived for a late lunch (I think after a huge rush with the May 7 graduation crowd), but we ordered mostly breakfast items. Everything tasted better than homemade with large portions. If available, get the Rhubarb Crunch pancakes....Oh My!!

Absolutely go here for breakfast regardless of how far you have to travel to get here. The food is homemade and wonderful, the service exceptional, and the cookies to die for!
