Tried the new location on lake street for breakfast. I thought the was alright but nothing special. Not a huge selection on the menu. Definitely more expensive then our regular breakfast spots. Our server was pleasant. There were a few other servers that kept trying to bring us food that we didn't order as they didn't know which table it... More

Cute little breakfast joint. Quick, friendly service. Both my mother and I had the all day breakfast with the smoked meat hash. The potatoes were awesome, well seasoned and well cooked. Couldn't have asked for more for your basic breakfast. Strongly recommended!

I had a Cheeseburger. The meat was fresh not processed, Real cheddar, fresh endive lettuce. It came with excellent fries, and fresh creamy coleslaw. Grand total... More

My husband and I were looking forward to their new location opening. We were greatly let down by the poor service. Drinks never filled, never got our water, no milk for coffee or ketsup at table. My eggs florentin looked nothing like the photo posted on review page. We watched another table walk out they were seated by a man... More

Hi Jillian. I apologise for your experience. We definitely had our challenges on Sunday. I am working extremely hard this week so we never repeat that type of performance. I thank you for giving us another chance in the future. More

We sat down and the first thing I noticed was the menu was dirty. Not a little smudge but disgusting. Dried ketchup and egg on the front. Then went to sit down and there was food scraps on the chair. Before leaving I looked around and noted the rest of the place looked almost spotless. The cutlery was clean so... More
