We had a rain delay and came here to grab breakfast and pass time. The breakfast menu is not extensive but it was well executed. The service was friendly and efficient. I'd definitely go back for the cheesy hash browns. This place is a great...More

For a sign that says home of western omelet I was expecting something amazing well by omelet standards. It looked nice and was stuffed but poor and cheap quality of ingredients grunting upsetting wait staff differently didn't enjoy their jobs very much. When I asked...More

Not what I initially expected for this part of town but a great diner style breakfast. Great bacon. The western omelette was good. The menu was simple and not overwhelming. My guess is that the main attraction is the pancakes which were the size of...More
