We ate here based off hotel recommendation and discount. We were seated immediately and the place wasn't busy. A waitress took our beverage order but we waited awhile to get coffee. We were told they staff was down a cook and a waitress. Our waitress was not attentive and the "egg ceptional" omelette did not live up to its name.... More

We were seated right away at 10 am on Saturday morning but waited 15 min for someone to approach us. Ouch! I need coffee! Under-staffed, poorly staffed on this day. Manager was unorganized and bouncing from random task to next thing. Food was finally brought to table at room temperature and cool cooked eggs are never good.

First time visitor, loved it, will go there again. I really like have breakfast any time of day and they have a lot of options. Clean place, good service, big menu. I had the raspberry and granola stuffed whole wheat pancake - very good - would like to try the banana bread French toast some day.

The food is always good. Order coffee and they'll leave an insulated carafe at your table. The servers are pleasant and efficient.

My sister & I dined here for a quick bite a couple of months ago. We arrived early afternoon and the place was not crowded. The atmosphere is quite unassuming and I was expecting an average meal. The wait staff seemed uninterested in us and it took nearly 10 minutes to just get a menu. Another 10 minutes later our... More

Santa Fe Huevos were a full flavorful way to start the day & service was very good. Only downside was sitting right by front door & boring ambiance.

Ate here for a quick breakfast. The Belgium waffle was very good. Our server was also good. Would recommend as a quick breakfast stop.

Four family members gathered here for breakfast. The menu is appetizing, but reality arrived with our meals. A Wisconsin Scrambler was buried in cheese, the onions on top turned out to be a few bits of green onion (would you list a parsley garish as an ingredient?), and the grits were gray and unappetizing. An Athena Scrambler was covered in... More

I have gone there twice in the last month and loved it both times. Great service and awesome food! I took my two boys and they loved their dishes as well!

The food was very good, but the service was horrible. Waited ten minutes to get our ticket so we could leave, ridiculous because it was 11:30 and not busy!
