I've eaten there many times and have always had a good meal. The menu is large with nice variety. Breakfast is served all day. The lunch choices are also very good.

In my opinion this is the best place in town to get breakfast. Fresh ingredients, good prices, friendly staff, can't really go wrong with that. Flavor is really good. I've tried quite a few dishes but my favorite is huevos rancheros or breakfast burrito. Also...More

Good food, with real ingredients. Quick friendly table service and the coffee cups never go empty. Rockland can be a bit expensive, but prices were very reasonable. We'll be back.
