“Eh, not impressed”
Reviewed October 7, 2013 via mobile

Huge selection of food items and great, friendly staff. Food kind of bland, and some of it was even cold.

“Not Gluten-Free Friendly”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Pros: Friendly staff. Better than average food. Fresh/good coffee. Imaginative specials. Family friendly. Clean. Generally fast service. Popular with locals and tourists.

Cons: Really only one (well 2 if you count that they are usually crazy busy). But, if you are either looking for a gluten-free place for breakfast this probably isn't the best choice. They charge an extra $2 PER SLICE of gluten-free bread. This is not at all competitive with other breakfast restaurants in the area and really hard to justify. This pricing policy is the reason for my average rating.
