I ate here once and was not impressed. The food was just ok, nothing special. The view was ok, we didn't see any planes coming or going. The prices were expensive, for what you get, you get a better meal at home! I don't think...More

the food and service were excellent, the portions were great and the atmosphere was very friendly. All around it was a great place to eat. The only downfall was they have no grilled home fries.

Great breakfast.We went early enough so that waiting wasn't an issue.Large selection of choices. Home fries and the homemade beans were very tasty. Fun to watch planes take off. Not a large place though so maybe not a choice for large group.

Have an old aviation theme, you can watch planes come and go from the Sanford airport as you eat. Great breakfast food, so much good for the price and it's great. Recommend doing breakfast here if you're in the area.
