Breakfast here is cheap and good, as it has been for 15 years! Three of us ate different meals and we were all quite happy ...and full. Biscuits were a bit dry but no big deal.

I'm sorry to tell you this. The food is so great, there is always a wait time. My suggestion would be go before you get to famished, so the wait time does not bother you! Start early..1030 am to 1100am! Bob Apetite!
