“Great Breakfast / Brunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2014

Be prepared to wait to be seated on weekends BUT you can call ahead and get put on the waiting list which can go up to an hour. The menu is very inventive with solid options and fresh healthy ingredients. Tea is real loose leaf tea. When you are leaving, beverages 'to go" are a complimentary send off. Service is fast and friendly. The decor is country chic --a fun place.

“LOUD...but very good!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

First things first...this place is extraordinarily loud. That said, they pack the place every weekend and for good reason. Wide assortment of delicious breakfast offerings. Service has always been outstanding. We really enjoy eating outside when the restaurant places tables under the trees on the lawn outside the restaurant. Out there it is peaceful and you get the same great food and service. Be prepared to wait on weekends if you don't have a reservation. Highly recommend!!

“Great”

We love this restaurant. The food is great and so is the service. We go for lunch or breakfast, at least once a month.

“must try the Rosti”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

our favorite chain breakfast place and hard to choose from soooooo many great dishes. Rosti skillet is yummy with green onion, sour cream, bacon and those crusty shredded potatoes.

staff is pleasant pricey but delicious

we only patronize for breakfast so can't comment on the lunches

“Love this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2014

We came here for breakfast on a Sunday morning and loved it. We waited about 15 minutes and it was worth it. There is a variety to choose from on the menu. Great service, great food and you will definitely not leave there hungry or thirsty. Definitely recommend
