Simple and good food in vast quantities. The service is very good. Great place to see locals and tourists mix. We love the omelettes and pancakes.

We stopped in for a late lunch before we checked in to our hotel. I had a delicious grilled vegetable sandwich that had a ton of flavor from a red pepper pesto and a delicious chimmichurri, while my boyfriend went for the all day brunch with an omelette and home fries. Local farm fresh ingredients and great flavor.

Great place for breakfast. Very busy and crowded. We waited a bit for a table. The avocado wrap was great.

Let me start by saying that I have never had apples in an omelette before. My husband and I ate breakfast here, and we both had apples with our eggs. I had the bacon, apple, and cheddar omelette which was unbelievably good. Everything is fresh. My home fries were real potatoes and were delicious, along with the homemade wheat toast.... More

Walking in the door, we were basically ignored by the wait staff. After almost 5 minutes, which is a long time standing at the podium, we were finally acknowledged and then had to wait another 10 minutes even though we could see tables available. We finally got a table only to wait another long period of time just to be... More

I like my breakfast to feature good solid regular food like eggs, bacon (very good) and toast along with a fruit plate choice. They had all of this and an attentive wait staff, the coffee was excellent and my cup was always filled.

Staff was great but food was very disappointing. My daughter had cinnamon bun pancakes that were not cooked and were still batter like. I ordered an omelet with four ingredients and received two of the four. One ingredient was ham (in the omelet) and it tasted bad, as in old out dated bad. We've been before and it was good,... More

Cooked perfect with cheese and bacon and wrapped in a fluffy egg blanket. And did I mention that the coffee is amazing. I mean really good!!!! I was told that it's local... More

We stopped here with our 2 and 6 year old boys. Breakfast cocktails were on the menu--my husband got a tasty Bloody Mary, while my son drank fresh squeezed orange juice. A lot of yummy sounding breakfast offerings---my husband and I both got what was called the "hatch-a-cado," egg and tomato on a roll with sliced avocado and home fries.... More

Love this place! French toast made with home made bread. Pancakes and waffles with chocolate chips or fruit. Great eggs with traditional options or dishes with a little flare. Yum
