I met a friend here on the way out of town. We had four adults and one child in our party. Despite being busy, our wait was manageable. I thought the service was timely and polite. The food was good, and the prices were reasonable. The only negative that comes to mind is the fact that they were grilling hot peppers for someone's order and the smoke caused everyone's eyes to burn.

All-in-all, it was a nice experience.

We ate at the Over Easy Breakfest Café on a Saturday morning, and getting there around 9:45 meant we had about a 35 minute wait. (It made me wish the café was within a spot with shops that opened earlier for browsing before you ate, but that's an aside.)

Once we got in, we sat right by the window for good people watching. The café is cute and quirky, and the service was very good. Lots of people to make sure that you're taken care of. I had the huevos rancheros with soysage, which was outstanding. It was so delicious that I ate way more than I normally would. My 12 year old daughter had a special, which was challah French toast with blueberry compote with whipped cream, and she practically licked the plate.

We raved about the food to the rest of the family who didn't get to go, and we will definitely be back!

I would recommend Over Easy Cafe. The place is small and you are not real comfortable eating there. The food is very good and is reasonably priced. They have a lot of unique breakfast items and all 5 in our party thought the food was good. The service was a little slow, but not real bad. I'm sure they are normally very busy so you may have to wait a while.

I'd been hearing for years about the lavender french toast. I didn't taste anything remotely lavender about it. It seemed like it was just watered down vanilla yogurt on top of french toast, along with lots of granola. I definitely should have asked for it without the granola because that added nothing to it. Bacon was way over-priced and dry.

This wasn't my idea of a tasty breakfast. Plus, my water and tea were empty for several minutes before asked if we wanted refills.

I admit beforehand that I'm unfairly biased against breakfast. It's my 4th favorite meal of the day on days I accidentally swallow a stray insect while jogging. So it means something that I would give this place a positive rating. The wait at 11am was around 30 minutes, and it's not a large place. But the omelette was terrific, and the menu is well-planned and thoughtful. Even a breakfast grouch like me would go back.
