Ugh, where to begin:

1. Was deceived by Groupon and over 1000+ sold.
2. Was greeted by host/owner chatting on cell phone.
3. Was seated in awkward, stained pleather-like Ikea blaze orange sofas.
4. Ordered Denver omelette, looked like prison loaf.
4a. Likely tasted like prison loaf, but I've never been to prison.
5. "Hashbrowns" were mush.
6. English muffin was raw bread dough.
7. Couple across from us squished a bug on the floor.

I'll stop there. We bolted out the door as quickly as possible.

And to end with a quote from the ultimate foodie/former Viking Randy moss,"I wouldn't feed that s#!t to my dog."

To be completely candid, we didn't actually eat here but went in, waited, and were so disgusted by how filthy this place is that we left. There are two orange, filthy faded orange couches outside the front doors. They look like they belong on the curb. The foyer has beaten up shelves from IKEA and sickly-dirty walls and floors. Even the bright yellow paint job is bad. It's clear they took over the Chinese restaurant, slapped up some paint, added some spray-painted chickens and lights from IKEA and called it a restaurant. I firmly believe that if the part of a restaurant you can see is dirty, the kitchen isn't going to be any better..

Thought the food quality and presentation were very good and the service was attentive. Everyone at the table seemed to enjoy what they ordered and the restaurant itself was quite inviting. But one trip to the filthy, dirty restrooms ruined the experience and then had you wondering about the conditions and sanitation practices in the kitchen. A real shame that ownership needs to immediately address.

There are so many good breakfast/lunch places in the area, there's no reason to waste your time here. The food was below average and the service was horrendous. Server disappeared and really couldn't care less about her job. And there were a bunch of people (owners...their friends...whatever) hanging out in the entry way. I felt very uncomfortable, like I was intruding. One of the most awkward meals I've ever eaten in a restaurant. So, really, try someplace else.
