Outdoor seating is available and on a nice day would be perfect. Prices are reasonable for the area and the food was good. I had bacon, 2 eggs, hash browns & English muffin. Fruit was available along with other sides. Plenty of indoor seating to handle all the crowds. I recommend...

Do not be intimidated by the long lines out front. The place is huge and the customer service is fast and efficient. Large booths and tables, so it is a perfect place for friends or families. Lots on the menu, portions are huge and a great value for your $$.

So good we went back twice. Had the Machacha and it was delicious! The others really enjoyed their meals, as well. The service was exceptional. The first time, we had a waiter (John?) who was the most efficient, interesting, and well-versed waiter I have ever encountered. He also offered great suggestions for local restaurants. Highly recommend this place.

We had the Nutella crepes and we asked the waiter about them and he said they were good. They were so delicious and we never had them before. Excellent service & clean restaurant.

The vegetation omelet with a side of fruit was very filling and delicious. The French toast was made with thickly sliced bread.
