Service - slow / 12 noon on a Sat was busy but not packed. Food just ok. Most of our meals were cold or just warm. Wife had the "jalapeño popper" grilled cheese. Cheese wasn't melted came with triple the amount of jalapeños than anything else / very disappointed.

A good breakfast at a reasonable price and excellent service. It is good to know that they serve breakfast all day.

Food is greasy and slow service. Not what it used to be. Value for your money is not here. Hopefully they get better.

Stopped in for early lunch, great serving breakfast all day. Eggs Benedict done right, just wish we could have homemade Hollandaise.

Although the decor is a bit more 'trendy' don't let the reviews fool you, this is just a plain Jane breakfast spot. Nothing spectacular to report, but no complaints as well. Would definitely visit again. People stop giving everything that's edible 5*s

Listen. This is not a fine dining establishment by any means. It's clean and can get pretty busy and noisy at times. But if you want a decent breakfast at a good price you can't go wrong. I eat here regularly with friends and the best deal in the house is the classic breakfast. 2 eggs done any way you... More

So I thought things would not go well when I was brought an omelette I didn't order, but I was starving so I dug in and was I glad I did! I mentioned it to the waitress to actually thank her because it was better than what I had ordered and she brought the omelette I ordered along, for free!!!... More

Breakfast food time is anytime for my wife and I, and this is where we go if we don't make it ourselves. It is a 20 min drive to get there for us but that doesn't stop us. Consistently perfect breakfast served with lightning speed by attentive friendly staff. You'll never be disappointed here.
