It's everything you hope and expect it to be. Cute little place tucked into a strip center. You'll be pleasantly surprised when you walk in. You're always greeted by a friendly and helpful staff. The menu has all the breakfast choices you want and some you don't expect. Huge, fluffy pancakes. The lunch menu has a nice variety.

They only serve breakfast (all day) and lunch. 7:00-2:30.

I have been wanting to stop by this local place and today I finally made it. I think it is typically a great sign when a breakfast place is super busy on a Sunday at 8:30am. It was everything I hoped for: great food, fast service without feeling rushed, and a local feel. We will be back!

No wait the day we ate breakfast here, but it soon filled up. We were seated at a table for four next to a wall. You know the kind, where the person sitting next to the wall is eating with their elbows pressed to their sides. The food was average although plentiful. I was the only person at the table drinking decaf coffee and had to ask for a refill even though those drinking regular coffee were refilled a few times. It is very clean and would go back again, just wouldn't go out of my way to eat there.

We decided to try the Recipe Box for breakfast after hearing a great review from family member. I was disappointed - it is between average to poor. Let me explain why;
1) French toast was cold
2) Bacon excessively greasy (yes bacon can be greasy but this seemed excessive). After breakfast my stomach complained thanks to the grease.
3) Husband had Italian omelette and says it tasted average - it also seemed to be excessively covered in cheese so that seemed to be the primary taste.
4) The seating was too close to bathroom and you can 'smell' it each time folks walk by.

Good stuff:
1) Staff very friendly.
2) Fast Service
3) Great prices
4) Portion size is good.

Not sure if I will return...
