Great weekend brunch spot, especially the huevos rancheros and their fresh baked goods. They have paid attention to having quality beers/variety on tap.

Good amount of parking and easy on/off the highway make this an easy diner to go to. With grocery stores & other errands near by it can fit easily into the routine, but it just doesn't consistently deliver. Wide variety of menu options, including alcohol.
