“Breakfast or lunch”
Reviewed August 9, 2012 via mobile

This is a small whole on the wall shack. The atmosphere is old homie like but they have great service. They came by our table several times to check on us. The portions are ok for the price. We even got a 20% off discount of our bill. Its an average place that was satisfying

“Great food, nice staff, nice new owners”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

Had lunch here today, and excellent food like always. Hole in the wall kind of place with big portions and well seasoned food. Companion had huevos rancheros and I had a big BLT club which was great. Lots of great and reasonable daily specials. Closes at 3pm so don't try to make dinner reservations. Eclectic neighborhood with IMAX and DIGS across the street and the Cat City Police Department down the street.

“Best Breakfast in the desert”
Reviewed May 4, 2012

Take the time to visit this friendly cafe.
It is my favorite haunt for an inexpensive breakfast meal.
I order the Sunshine special, two eggs cooked anyway I like them, hash brown or home fries and a dozen different kinds of toast.
I won't tell you the price so go and discover for yourself. You won't be disappointed!

“Breakfast only”
Reviewed April 19, 2012

We have eaten here several times and we really like the owner. The food pours out of a small kitchen that can get very busy on weekends for breakfast with the locals who flock for the skinny Coffee, eggs and pancakes. The food itself is your average diner in quality (a little greasy) and the interior is in need of paint. Over all, it has a great location, fun atmosphere and good food. Service is average and if their busy just be patient and enjoy.
