“It's easy to eat too much”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

Great spot for a generous and traditional breakfast. Don't eat it all--portions are large. Often noisy.

“talk about a ZOO!”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

First off it was a weekend that we "tried" to eat here, maybe it's different on a weekday. Our Hotel suggested this place. As we walked up it looked like the New York stock exchange. The hostess was using a microphone to announce when your table was ready!
I'm sorry but I like to enjoy my food and the company i'm with. Do yourself a favor and walk down the street to Fox & Oble's market and cafe.

“so many great choices”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

by far my favorite breakfast place.. it has a tremendous amount of choices for every taste.. the lines are usually very long on the weekends but they work hard to make them move fast.. the only thing i dont like is their choice in espresso based drinks, i think they could definitely improve on that.. but the food is delicious and looks beautiful; the staff is quick and friendly

“Great Breakfast Spot”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

We arrived at 8:30 on a Saturday, just ahead of the crowds. By the time we left, the line was out the door. While the coffee is nothing to write home about, the breakfast fare is good. My wife had the french toast sampler and and I had the eggs benedict. Both were very good. Service is quick. Reasonably priced.
