Had brunch at Cracker Box and enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Portions are LARGE!!!! I had bacon, cheese omelette. Was prepared perfectly and served promptly. Coffee cup was never even half full...always topped off. Vibe is fun and fifties-ish. Servers are friendly and attentive.

Omelettes and their specialty potatoes are really good. They have fresh squeezed juice and daily specials. The sweet potato pancake was tasty. We have not had lunch there yet, but heard it's good. Downside to this place is they don't take credit cards.

The home style potatoes for breakfast can't be beat.....not the run of the mill hash browns....wide variety of choices for breakfast and lunch plus daily specials. Attentive wait staff.
