Very cute atmosphere. Friendly staff. Lots of menu choices and all of them delicious. Prices are very reasonable. Usually a reasonable wait time even at peak times. Great for breakfast or lunch.

Have eaten here close to a dozen times and have never been disappointed. The Benedicts, sandwiches, and salads are all good. Huge menu with seasonal specials, food comes out really fast, but the wait staff never makes you feel rushed.

Saturday morning and no wait for a table. The menu is long and the waitress advised us to read it all and brought coffee and water while we read it all. We all had different offerings, several skillets and a benedict and a frittata. they were all very good. Only one complaint, the breakfast potatioes were rather salty.

Service was excellent if a little noisy!! A good find downtown we will add to our list in that area.

This is always our first choice for a special breakfast out (including champagne mimosas), but it also offers great meals for lunch and dinner. Big windows and a patio make you part of the scene of Crystal Lake's lovely town center.
