“Great Breakfast”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

My wife and I had breakfast and were very pleased. The omelet and French toast were tasty, served hot, and priced well. The service was prompt. The decor isn't great, but the food makes up for it. Note the there is a walk-up counter by the front door, and lots of people hanging out outside. So it may look like there is a long wait when you can actually be seated immediately.

“Delicious/reasonable”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

Great food, reasonable prices and friendly staff. Catered to special diet without any issues. I do wish there had been a few more tables available outside.

“Yes, eat here!”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

Delightful wait staff, not only to us, but to each other! Yummy food for a reasonable price. Easy to fine, parking across the street in a large mall parking lot and worth checking out.

“Great Place”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

We love this café - food is always good and service is efficient and friendly. Great place to stop in to get fueled up for your day activities. Two of my favorites on the menu are the Ugly Fries and the scram with egg whites, peppers, and turkey. Pancakes are good too

“Busy and ordinary”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

Long waits at breakfast time. Had a waffle that seemed like a large Eggo waffle. Just okay. Husband had Huevos Rancheros and said they were very good. Also had salads one day for lunch and they were excellent. I preferred lunch to breakfast.
