My wife and I stopped in for breakfast early on a Saturday morning. The place was very busy, but we were seated almost immediately. The restaurant has a nice, comfortable feel to it.
After waiting about 10 mins, the waitress came by and asked for our order. 20 more mins passed before our food was delivered. My wife's was a simple eggs over easy, with sausage, and it was OK. However, my hueveos rancheros arrived cold. Not even warm at all, but COLD.
I mentioned this to the waitress. She just shrugged her shoulders and said she didn't know why. No apology, no offer to heat it up, no reasonable response like one might expect.
I suspect we got there when the place was too busy. We won't go back.

Today was our second visit and we were not disappointed. Service was excellent - our waiter was interested in us and attentive to our table. Coffee is strong and tasty and the food should not be missed. The items are unique enough to not be a standard eggs and meat breakfast, although they offer that if that's what you like. Serving sizes are generous and you won't leave hungry. I had the corn cakes with green chiles, bacon, and cheese and they were phenomenal. Add two eggs over easy and top with their delicious salsa and my husband stopped eating his own breakfast and started finishing mine. Setting is charming and diners are seated and served quickly.

We had breakfast here two mornings in a row - trying the seasonal pancakes (pumpkin since it's October), waffles, huevos rancheros and farmer's omelet. Everything was really good. Service was prompt and friendly. Coffee cups were kept full.

Terrific place. They have a baker on the premises and that's what separates this place from most we've ever eaten at. Blueberry corn pancakes, raisin walnut french toast, it goes on and on. Homemade salsa comes to the table for your eggs (hot hot thot), a wonderful homemade raspberry jam for your muffin or bread, a wide array of omlets, pancakes, etc.

This is one fantastic breakfast experience. Not to be missed.

This is the place to eat, we had a wonderful lunch here in October. The Tuscan Chicken sandwich was a treat, not your ordinary food, definitely of the home made variety. Check their menu on their website.

The place was busy and clearly a favorite of the locals.
