“Breakfast worth the wait”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Wonderful gem of a breakfast place. Yes they r open very early even on Sunday, be prepared to wait. The secret is out on this place.....service is excellent and the menu is oh soo good charming restaurant. I love breakfast and they have earned their 5 stars without the 5 star prices!!!!! When weather is good dine on their patio....but, this place is tiny and their customers get there early! We will be back!

“Worth The Wait”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

Stopped her for breakfast on a Saturday morning before heading to the Farmers Market. We were lucky enough to have the last table waiting just for us ;-) Our server was outstanding...greeting us with a big friendly smile and coffee in hand. Our food arrived quickly and was great....simple bacon and eggs for me but my husband had the CornedBeefHash w/ Poached Eggs and said it was great. As we were finishing, we noticed a line had formed out the door. Food, Service and Value...all worth the wait!

“Saturday morning breakfast - yum!”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

Its a wait in the morning on the weekends, but I think it is worth it. Its not super fancy, but the outdoor patio is nice and the food is good. Just a nice change from a coney island for breakfast.

“You Will Love This Place”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Great little place for breakfast/lunch. They make the best breakfast food I have ever had from quiche to pancakes. Everything is fresh. If you get beyond breakfast, which is hard to pass up, the sandwiches and salads are wonderful. On the weekends you may have to wait but it's well worth it.

“Breakfast, Lunch, or Brunch - eat a bunch!”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

We've had many a family outing here, and it's consistently delicious. The portions are always very generous and scrumptious to boot. Any French Toast I've had here is to die for! When the weather's good, sit outside and have a fantastic sandwich.
