“Quaint”
Reviewed June 9, 2014

We tried this place on a recommendation since we wanted to try somewhere that wasn't fast food or Dennys (no offense Dennys!).

Its located at the base of an apartment building not far from the touristy area and casino (walking distance).

The place is very quaint, small, clean and artsy (paintings were on the wall like a gallery).

The breakfast menu is simple and well priced. I ended up having a breakfast wrap (which was delicious and my bf got the bacon/eggs breakfast with toast. I thoroughly enjoyed my wrap w/ eggs, spinach, salsa, bacon. It was just big enough, not greasy and full of flavour. The bacon w/ my bf's breafast was overly fatty and greasy, he didn't enjoy his breakfast or coffee and said he should have went for one of their wraps.

Service was friendly and prompt. I'd go back for the breakfast wraps and would like to try their lunch menu.

“Soups are excellent!”

Small place, but food is very good...especially the soup. Service is a bit slow, but acceptable. Good place for lunch.

“Nice Spot...”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

This is a nice quiet spot to grab breakfast. It was quick, good prices, clean, and strong coffee. Can't ask for much more than that.

“What a Great Lunch and Breakfast Spot”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

Not an IHOP or Denny's with big portions but great service and good homemade breads and breakfasts. Large cups of coffee and great pictures on the walls by local artists. Well worth a visit is you want a different breakfast experience then as I said a Denny's or IHOP.
