Stopped by the Prospect Ave location and was very impressed. So much so that I went back the next day. Very well lit, very clean, and very good homemade food. The service was excellent and I was happy with my choice of the breakfast burrito....More

I can't say how busy they are lately; they've always done a good business, though. Breakfast through about 2 PM as I recall, it's often fairly busy. The Montana Avenue location is, I think, even busier.
