Had it not been for positive reviews on TripAdvisor, I might not have visited this cafe. I enjoyed a Sunday morning breakfast here: omelette with hash browns, toast and coffee. The food was tasty, the portion generous and the price reasonable. Recommended.

Enjoy the variety of egg dishes made with great ingredients. We both enjoyed the amigo eggs made with poached eggs on English muffins topped with salsa and melted cheddar and then guacamole on top. Exceptional. Good coffee as well.

When you combine great food, great service and a great view you have a successful restaurant that is never slow! So expect a crowd and consider that when going. Dinosaurs are the table markers 😁 top it off with great lattes and amazing baked goods....More
