Went there on a Saturday morning and there was a 60 minute wait. No problem, a few places were open and plenty of window shopping. And they text you when your table is ready, so no standing around waiting. I had the biscuits and gravy, I was a little unsure of "herb gravy", but it great! Mimosa was great, frozen... More

Very small restaurant with long wait, but the food was excellent. I got biscuits and gravy with sausage, and split with a friend. It was plenty of food! I had the memosa, it was very strong and tasty! The coffee was also excellent

The food can be beaten anywhere by anyone.I had heaves rancheros and nine hours later, I am still full.It was great. My gluten free, lactose intolerant kid finally found a place where she could order anything. And her pancakes were really good. My wife... More

WOW... great breakfast! Very small restaurant with limited seating ... but the menu was creative and seasonal. I loved my omelet with leek and kale ... BUT equally good for kids! There will be a wait if you don't get there early!

The breakfast choices are tradition with a refreshing, healthy and tasty twist by the chef. Classic or lavender French toast as an example. It is a small restaurant with excellent service. It opened at 8 and if you want an early breakfast and arrive before 8, there is a sign up sheet on the podium. And they do not seat... More

When traveling, we always hope to find the breakfast place of our dreams-- clean and stylish interior, friendly staff, and delicious inspired local food. Overeasy had it all-- adorable animal screen prints decorated the cool blue walls, cheerful waitstaff, helpful front staff (you get a text when your table is ready), and hangds down the best breakfast husband and I...

I was a little worried when they said the wait time was 30 to 40 minutes. but they took our cell phone # and texted us when to come back. I just had something simple, two eggs over and the potatoes. They were fresh and delicious. Well worth the wait.

If you're going to call your restaurant "over easy," it implies that you know your way around an egg. It seems that they either have a rookie in the kitchen, or nobody knows how to poach an egg. Our eggs Benedict had eggs with hard centers (and the serving at the table next to us did too). Service took forever... More

This always crowded breakfast spot is well worth the wait. Have visited several times...I can't convince myself to order anything other than the huevos rancheros but my partner has tried numerous dishes. All have been excellent. Their fresh juices are great too!
