This restaurant was located across the street from my hotel, so I decided to have breakfast there. I was greeted when I walked in the door, and seated in a booth. My waitress (Tracy) was efficient - I placed my order for French Toast with powdered sugar (I opted not to have anything else with it), and seemingly with in... More

We stopped in for lunch one day. It is small inside, but huge on flavor of their dishes and really nice portion sizes for the price. Good selection for kids, but you have to ask what they have on their kids menu.

Eggs Bennie to die for... Breakfast menu was great omelettes, waffles, pancakes you name it! Didn't wait long either... Our waitress who's name sadly I missed was wonderful... They even ran a block down the street to catch us as we forgot our camera!

Went here this morning and it was packed so we thought the reviews were going to be spot on....wrong. The service was slow and the food wasn't even mediocre. The eggs were runny and not just the yolks. The toast wasn't even toasted and the sausage wasn't fully cooked.

We were staying just across the road and spotted this place, we sat outside as we were early and it wasn't too hot yet. Really friendly people here who couldn't do enough for us, the breakfast was lovely and very reasonably priced, would highly recommend.

Stopped in here for breakfast while on vacation. Showed up around 8am to no wait & quick service. Great price for the amount of food & friendly service. Omelette was delicious. I would recommend getting there early as the next day we walked by a little later in the morning & there was already a wait.
