This has become our favorite place for breakfast...and not just because of the 1/2 price weekday breakfast, but it is a nice bonus. Food is always prepared nicely and staff is friendly and attentive. No wows, but good solid dependable meals and service.

The staff was friendly, but the service was very slow. The restaurant was not busy, but it took awhile for someone to wait on us. The food came out pretty fast, and it tasted okay, but we again had to wait for the waitress to...More
