“Tastes Like Cake!”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

If you're looking for some incredible, early morning, comfort food, look no further. Chocolate chip pancakes, scrambled eggs, hashbrowns, they've got it all.

“Best place for breakfast”
Reviewed May 4, 2013 via mobile

This is definitely the best place for breakfast in Carbondale. This is where i ate with my parents anytime they came down for a visit. Sometimes it can get really busy, and you have to be ok with eclectic, cluttered decor. Hippie-ish! But a nice little joint.

“More than a college coffee shop”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

Eclectic and fun. This cafe has a wonderful selection of food. Try the ranch potatoes, which are seasoned home fries - excellent. I love the Shawnee Club with sprouts and avocado. They use fresh ingredients and everything is homemade. Better than the corporate style sandwich shops.

“Fun and filling”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

This place is always buzzing. It has a very extensive menu for breakfast and lunch. It is always packed with people and often a little noisy but the food is worth the congestion.

Two flavors of coffee are always available and each cup is served in a one of a kind mug.

Prices are reasonable but always bring cash. They don't take credit cards.

“Best hot breakfast arouind!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Prepare for a wait on the weekends. Worth waiting for. Pancakes are huge: you probably only need one. Local Carbondale themed decorations. Great Huevos Rancheros.
