I don't agree with previous reviewer- the portabello panini is vegan and AMAZING. Business needs to be encouraged to have vegan options - kuddos to Sleepy Bee for trying!!! That sandwich is my favorite in town

Really, really noisy, no sound damping materials. Fair food ... okay for what it is. Popular with some groups. Fair service.

We tried this place after reading the reviews. We were not disappointed! We did have to wait quite a while. But, at least there's plenty of room to roam while you wait. Our group had omelettes, a variety of pancakes and eggs, bacon, and potatoes....More
