During a weeks vacation I dined here for breakfast twice. Great staff and great food. Within walking distance from our rental house. No disappointment here.

Just come in and be seated; the group of five of us had no problem finding a table, although it was busy, around 11:30 A.M. Good hamburgers, wraps and sandwiches. All tasty and very, very large. That, however, should not stop you from getting some...More
