Get there early...before 9:00 am or there'll be a wait. There is a reason for the wait. Pancakes, Crepes, Omelettes and the Benedicts are all good...can't go wrong.
Our standard "go to" are the Spinach with Swiss cheese omelette (w/Pancakes on the side), Cherry Kijafa Crepes and either the Eggs Benedict or Eggs Michael. Their Dutch baby and Apple Pancake or exceptional as well....Oh and BTW...GREAT coffee!

Portions are large so consider splitting or you'll be taking food home...
Service is fast as well...

A little bit pricey for breakfast...but the quality and variety will not disappoint...worth the extra $$.

Went to this restaurant with my family and loved the crispy 49ers and meaty thick bacon. Big mistake was ordering the fruit salad. For the price of $5 I received the equivalent of 1/2 banana and four strawberries. That was a real ripoff. This experience lost one star for that and the strong coffee that was barely drinkable.

You cannot not go to Poway and not stop here for some delicious coffee and breakfast. It’s been around for so long that it is and always be a part of Poway. Great service though it is on the smaller side so get there early because it does fill up fast especially on the weekends. But it’s worth it. Enjoy great service, delicious food, and nummy coffee.

Early Sunday morning family breakfast was a real treat . Pancakes , eggs , bacon , potatoes all made right . Ample portions to get you through till the afternoon . Prompt service and attention . One tip go early or expect to wait a bit , if so it is worth the time.

Crowded but high-capacity, with reasonably quick service on a weekday morning. More extensive menu than most pancake places. Lots of parking in a strip mall. Cherry crepes a bit unusual but crab ben. perhaps the most tasty.
