Went here 2 days in a row with a group for breakfast. The omelets were great and French toast was delicious. Staff was friendly and attentive. We went early to avoid the crowds and the wait. Prices very reasonable.

When entered the place, we were told there would be a 15 minute wait even there were many tables open. The GM gave the excuse that there were too many large parties to sit anyone else down. That was a lie for they continued to...More
