This is one of the two best places to go for breakfast in Yakima. It is family owned and the food is great. They have a varied menu so everybody should be able to find something. The prices are in line for the quality and quantity of food you will get. You will not leave hungry. Because they are so... More

This is a good restaurant for food, it is a little tiny restaurant that has home cooked style meals. If you are hungry and not necessarily looking for a fancy restaurant this is the place for you. The seating has both chairs and picnic bench style seats. prices are very reasonable. The place is very clean.

Loved this little café. It's in an old strip center, not easily seen from the street. The food was worth waiting for, they tell you when you come in how long it is until the server will take your order, after you're seated. Would go back, if we travel through Yakima again.

I had the pacific omelette, it had green onions, bay shrimp and hollandaise sauce. It was absolutely delicious. Bright warm atmosphere. Staff was very friendly.

The place maybe on the smaller side, but the food is awesome. I was there with a party of 7 and all the tables were full of good food and people have a good time. Some had the biscuits and gravy to high praises, just don't forget to try their French toast.

Location- set back off the road in a tiny strip mall surrounded by car dealers. Big breakfast menu. Many interesting choices. I had the homemade chorizo-skillet. It was excellent. Great flavors, homemade salsa, and hot tortillas. I was in town for 4 days on business and went back on my last day. This time I had the homemade chorizo scramble... More

Small place in a small strip mall-type location. A local recommended it. I had french toast with bacon & eggs. The bacon was rubbery & the FT was pretty small. For $10 I wouldn't call it a good value. It was average at best. Apparently the eggs benedict was no better.

You'd never expect this little gem in this location! The staff are friendly and they serve up an amazing "good ole fashion breakfast." I will be back again!
