Expensive breakfast: was told mine was very hot however there were cold spots in the meal, huevos rancheros. Service was okay. We arrived just as the place opened on a Sunday the hostess was not pleasant. Coffee was hot and warmed often.

Shoestring fries are unique but more like shoestring potato chips. Good portion sizes. Dining is a little cramped during the day. A little pricy. Regardless, food did taste great.

Sure I don't see why not, there were children there when I was there. Not the most entertaining place for them but they will enjoy the food.
