They were pretty busy. The food was good, though the potato hash was not my favorite (the potatoes were shredding way to thin). Eggs were good for the scramble and gluten free toast was a good quality. While the service was a bit slower than...More

Had the 2 egg breakfast. Cooked perfectly to order. Wasn't overwhelmed with the "hash" - kinda greasy shoestring potatoes. Yummy strawberry jam and French toast was good. The whole meal was a little on the cool side. Nice, fun place to eat. Will come again.

Friendly and knowledgeable waiter suggested a range of menu options for vegetarians, having recently adopted the diet himself. The blueberry pancakes were large and tasty. Could' have eaten the "four" option! "Vegetables and Hummas" could easily be shared all around. Friendly staff; great food.
