Food was great. And service was too. Will come back when we are in town again. Pancakes were good and fluffy and I had the California breakfast wrap. Very good and fresh. Saw that they had crepes. Will have to try on my next visit....More

This is a breakfast/lunch place conveniently located on Green Bay Road in Waukegan. Their staff are super nice and accommodating. Coffee is good, waffles delicious, omelet too. Portions are very ample. Good sized place so we didn't have to wait. We will return.

You will not be able to finish breakfast or lunch. The servers are pros (except Eloy still needs to learn the menu!!) and the food is exceptionally tasty.

Not a bad place for breakfast. The menu is pretty varied but not spectacular. All the food was good, could have been warmer as the eggs and French toast cooled off quickly. Service is friendly and the food came out fast.

Yes, it is pricey for a breakfast compared to other restaurants in the area. But they do have interesting specials that change frequently and huge omelettes.
