I've eaten here many times. Never disappointed. Very friendly service. Food is always great. Parking is a little tight but it's never a bad meal so I can deal with that.

Great selection of breakfast food and their bakery goods are homemade and delicious. My wife and I have been here more than a dozen times over the years and recommend it highly.
