We had breakfast here. My husband and I had the regular egg breakfast, nothing exciting there. My daughter in law had the pancakes, and my son had the breakfast bowl. Those looked much better. Great staff and good service!

When we were there in March, there wasn't a play area for kids. Just indoor seating and a patio outside in the back for seating as well.
