“Healthy Choices”
Reviewed June 23, 2014

They have a lot of unique and healthy choices. Multigrain pancakes, turkey bacon and sausage, fresh fruit, etc. I went with the cherry chicken quinoa protein bowl. It was a delicious choice and not like anything I have tasted. According to myfitnesspal it had 830 calories but 52 grams of protein. The service is fast and friendly. They close at 2:00 pm so go for breakfast or lunch.

“Tod is great!”
Reviewed March 13, 2014

My wife and I had lunch today at the 40 HWY location. This was our first visit, we went based on reviews in this website. I must say we were both blown away with the service we received from Tod, he was friendly and made suggestions which we acted on and were very pleased with our meals. The meals were tasty and innovative. We could not have more pleased with the experience!

“Such a good breakfast”
Reviewed November 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Always good. There's usually a wait on Saturday and Sunday, but it's worth it. Great selection and consistently good quality. Loved the pumpkin pancakes. For an extra treat, ask for the real maple syrup. There are lots of healthy choices if you can resist the pancakes and bacon and potatoes and... Mmmmm.
