My teen daughter and I met friends for breakfast. Avocado toast and chiliquiles were great. Coffee was good and strong. Interested in going back for an evening. Parking was a bit tough, but not impossible.

The Comet is an East Side fixture, and this review is a composite of multiple visits. The menu is hard core American, and the food is delicious. Brunch extends until 3 p.m.and the entrees are plentiful. Egg dishes are a speciality. The service is laid...More
