This diner is pretty pricey, considering what's NOT included. Interesting variety of waffles and pancakes, but almost nothing on the menu seemed to come with breakfast meat (sausage, bacon or ham). To order this with my blueberry compote French toast (already $9) it would have cost an additional 4.25. A half order of biscuits and gravy (unremarkable) was around $8, $2 less than the full order. I looked around, and not a single diner in sight had ordered the extra sides of meat. To top it off, ordering was slow, and breakfast even slower- over half and hour from getting our order, almost 45 min from arriving. BTW, the "silky" hollandaise is nothing more than gravy with yellow tint.

The short walk from our office next door has become a beaten path for our staff. Lunch portions are huge and delivered by smiling servers, many of whom are part of the owner's family. Breakfast is a similar treat...my spouse and I have to share an omelet because neither of us could finish the first time we went.

We love small restaurants that develop a character and niche among the food choices in the neighborhood. Couzin's didn't really have a stand-out draw other than being small, local and independent.

Breakfast choices had a few stand-out characters, lunch was very standard.

We went three times so we'd have a chance to compare and contrast.
Last time we visited they got three separate things wrong in our order, and haven't been back.

My husband found this restaurant from tripadvisor reviews. We decided to give it a try since we don't know the area well enough. It's a small cafe and very cozy. The cafe started to get busy by the time we got there. We waited for only 5 minutes before we got a table. The food was delicious. The ham steak I ordered was very lean and the hash brown was yummy. My children love the pancakes. The staffs are very friendly and we told them that we were out of town folks and found this place through website. The owner was so happy to hear that.:) The coffee was good too.

We have breakfast, lunch, or dinner every couple of weeks. I saw a newspaper article about this restaurant and several positive reviews on Yelp, so we decided to try it. The location has changed hands several times over the years, but this one looks like it will work and be here for a while.

Great food, great service. We had a Kitchen Sink scramble and a California scramble. Both were outstanding. The wait staff was excellent. The prices were right.

We can't wait to go back!
