Reviewed May 24, 2013 via mobile

Food is always fresh, unique, and homemade. The atmosphere is very different but good. The price is right and service is good. I have nothing negative to say.

“Good food, sloooooow service”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

We were here for breakfast and I had read other reviews, so was prepared for the laid back to the point of almost non existent service. At one point I felt almost guilty indicating we wanted coffee refills as the three female servers were having such a nice chat amongst themselves. What happens if you are on the balcony I don't know.
I had baked beans - delicious. Being from the UK, all baked beans are vegetarian (unless in a tin with sausages and I'm not sure how much meat is in these sausages!) so coming to the US and finding baked beans are cooked (in the traditional way) with meat was a bit of a surprised. The beans were out of a tin I think, but they were tasty and did not 'repeat' later.
Husband had eggs over easy, sausage patty and beans too.
All very good.
There was a queue on the stairs when we left. I wouldn't have queued, but it was Sunday, so maybe people wanted a leisurely start to the day with tasty food.
Recommended, but don't expect a quick in and out!

“Delicious and different breakfast!”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

Had a delicious elk sausage with eggs for breakfast - how often do you get that? Reasonably priced, clean and pleasant. A real treat.

“Quirky & delicious”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

Good coffee, great food, very good service, quirky fun atmosphere. We went about 4 times during our stay & enjoyed every bite, every time. If you have mobility issues you may not be able to make the stairs. It was clean & most importantly delicious.
