“Best breakfast anywhere!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Very popular - so you may have a wait. But it is definitely worth it! There are so many mouth watering selections on the menu, that you'll just have to go back again and again to try them all. And after eating here once, you'll WANT to go back again! Delicious and very fresh food!

“Fast and Friendly”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

Easy place for brunch -- huge selection, plenty of coffee refills, lots of smiles. Even a few out-of-the-box menu items! I'd say, give it a go. It's certainly not small or local, but it's very easy and not a Denny's:)

Reviewed March 30, 2013

First watch is always good. Made from scratch and great coffee. We have had breakfast here many times and have never been disappointed. We usually have a wait which should tell you something
