Came twice. First was a take out which was a bit faster. It was a tasty breakfast sandwich. Second time was a sit down and it was a cold day. Inside was full so we went to the enclosed porch which was very cold. We asked the waitress to start the gas fireplace and she truly did try but was unable to start it. We decided to stay and ordered coffee and put in our breakfast order. We eventually were able to move inside and got the paper and waited a fairly long time. Realized that the waitress was the only one there and she not only waited on tables, made the coffee but also cooked the breakfast. Probably wait time for our 3 orders was at least 30 minutes. True, no refills for coffee offered. Coffee in ceramic cup, rest of meal on Styrofoam and plastic utensils. I thought my vegie omlet was okay. My husband and son thought their home fries were definitely not good. Not much else around there for a hot breakfast. I might actually check out the waterfront hotels and cafes to see if there are other hot breakfasts.

Stopped by for breakfast with my wife while our son was in Sunday school. We sat outside and waited for a server to help us. We ordered a coffee and hot chocolate then ordered our breakfast. 1 breakfast sandwich with has browns, 2 eggs, hash browns and an English muffin. After 35 minutes of waiting and NO refills on our coffee, my wife asked about our food. We were told it would be another 5-10 more minutes before it would be done. Keep in mind we were waiting 35 minutes already. After 5 more minutes my wife went back to cancel the order and pay for the coffee as we now had to pick up our son from Sunday school. They said they only had 1 stove and they were a small business. Now we have no breakfast, no time to go anywhere else either before church starts. Will never go back and would not recommend either. Extremely poor service!!!

Decent breakfast fare and a very pleasant outdoor atmosphere. it's right across from Orange Hall, a few blocks from the riverfront. Service is very friendly, but the coffee could be stronger. Bagels are locally baked.

After reading the reviews, we thought this would be a great spot for breakfast. We were not just disappointed but completely surprised by the experience. Breakfast was served on Styrofoam plates and cups with thin plastic utensils that bent with every motion. Trying to cut meat or even butter toast was a challenge as was eating grits with a fork! I guess serving a sandwich on Styrofoam might be ok, but breakfast?? Not to mention the waste of plastic in the environment rather than washing dishes. We're not picky, but this was over the top.
