I actually like their breakfast here that I will order it for lunch, but the main event are the cookies. If you wait in line and the samples are on the counter, you can eat your way through it and still buy cookies to take...More

The food here is good, but it can be a bit spendy. A tuna melt, served with a small Caesar salad and a can of Coke, was almost $16.00. It was good, but it wasn't $16.00 worth of good. Additionally, the service could be a...More

This place is a decent diner. No table service - you order food and they bring it out and find your number. The biggest problem here was that the woman who was taking orders just couldn't get stuff straight. The food that came out, although...More

Hi Swop- I am so sorry that you received the wrong item, even though it was still good! It does get really loud during peak hours, but that is not an excuse for getting the order incorrect. I appreciate the feedback and will be sure...More

Come here regularly for breakfast. Order pesto omelette most of the time. Country potato is decent. My only complaint is that it smells oily because they don’t have a range on the other side where they cook too.

This is a GREAT breakfast spot with a huge variety on the menu and the best cinnamon rolls anywhere. It gets crowded and noisy but is definitely worth it!

We are a family owned and operated cafe. We began as a bakery and over the years have added our love of great homemade food to our menu. Each location has a bakery, complimentary homemade chips and salsa bar, and complimentary fruit infused water. We make everything from scratch, just like we cook for our kids at home. Try our pancakes, the crepes, the Belgian waffle, or any of our favorites and meet the amazing people that work with us to ensure we are spreading love one meal at a time! With love, Denica and James Freitas
