Good food! Upscale but not fancy. This is the kind of place we look for. Comfortable without being sloppy/cheap. Creative and always something different to try.
There was an important (to us) request made when ordering that the egg whites be DONE... not runny. YIKES... they came runny. But when mentioned to the server, he immediately reordered and they were better. BUT... it would be nice when you take the time to make the request when ordering that the importance of that request be shared with the kitchen AND the people there take note and serve it the way requested. FOOD was great and I'd go again and again.

It is rare, that I have found a place that cooks as well as myself, my Guatemalan mother in law or my own mom. I've found places in San Francisco, Houston, Atlanta, Indianapolis and very few in Reno. This place is added to that list. What a surprise. The cooking texture, spices, temperature and freshness, were all correct. How often does that happen or how long will it last? For now, this place is perfect, so don't wait!!

We stopped here for breakfast and were pleasantly surprised. The cafe is located in an older strip mall and is small but cozy. Every employee we encountered was friendly and helpful. The food was really good, plentiful and reasonable! Good coffee too. They have daily specials, breakfast and lunch items. We ordered omelettes, biscuits and gravy, sandwiches and a daily special. All of us were happy with our orders. This is definitely a place we will go to again.

We had a quick breakfast before heading to the airport. I had the quiche and coffee. It was all very good. Hubby had the ham and cheese omelet which he said was tasty. Good stop and friendly people. The place is not too big so may have to wait for a table!
