“Wonderful Breakfast”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

We stopped here for breakfast before our visit to the Edison & Ford Winter Estates and could not have chosen a better place. We liked it so much we returned on another morning.

On both visits we had multi-grain pancakes which you can customize from a variety of adders. We also ordered crisp bacon along with our coffee and green tea. The pancakes are huge, so if you order them, you might want to consider getting fewer than you would normally eat. They arrived hot and the bacon was actually crisp, not burned. Every bite was delicious!

Lastly, I don't know where they find the people they employ at this McGregor location, but every single one of them was wonderful. They were helpful, friendly and courteous. Hats off to whoever manages this restaurant because it is a gem!

“Great breakfast!”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

I ordered eggs Benedict, which was great. My husband ordered the first watch special, and was very pleased. Everything was cooked to perfection, and the service was great. Easy parking as well.

“Lovely All Around Experience”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Went here for lunch with friends after a shopping trip nearby. We all had the "2 for" specials. You can combine any two of the following three for approx. $7.00 to $8.00: a cup of soup, a half sandwich, a salad. And there were many varieties of each of the three to choose from, not just one or two choices. We spent quite a bit of time studying the extensive menu before we ordered. Personally, I had the tomato-basil soup, and a toasted specialty BLT. Both were wonderful, as was the fruit crepe I ate for dessert. My portions were very generous. The home-made iced tea was delicious and really tasted homebrewed. The restaurant was very busy, but our server was friendly and efficient. She also went to great lengths to explain all the healthy eating choices on offer and to answer all our questions. This was my first visit. It is a great place to have lunch with friends. I will be back.

“For fast breakfasts, this is tops”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

If you want efficient service and a good breakfast, this is the place. Better than Denny's and any other breakfast at a chain we've found. Love the pecan pancakes.
