Small little building with some shared tables and a very friendly staff. Food is amazing and portions are huge. The Frittata is huge and they have a 6 pound challenge. Great food, cheap eats. We try to go there every time we are in Syracuse.

We were recommended by the hotel we were staying at, to try this place out for breakfast. She warned us not to judge a book by the cover, and she was right! We pulled up, and it looks like the tiniest mobile home in a...More

We went here one Saturday morning while running our errands. The parking lot was full but we took a chance -- one little table right by the door! The menu has lots of goodies -- we both had the most delicious omelettes! They were paper...More
