We came in the morning after Thanksgiving, my wife had the special with the waffles and I had the biscuits and gravy. Great coffee and started us on our day, we didn't eat again till almost 5pm so be prepared to eat good.

The service and food here is always great whether its breakfast, lunch or dinner. Try the cucumber salad when there. I do wish they opened earlier though.

We sat in the outside porch area and even though the intersection is right there it was a pleasant atmosphere. The food was delicious and the portions were plentiful. The prices are a bit high. The chili was tasty and the avocado BLT was wonderful....The potato soup was also yummy. We skipped dessert because we were full but the pies did look amazing. The only disappointment was our server who was not friendly and disappeared after our food arrived. Other staff members were quite nice. All the food is homemade.More

We had California sandwich and it was very good. Burger was good. Avocado BLT was good as well. We were able to sit outside. Did not try the pies but were strongly encouraged to. Short drive from Hoover dam if visiting that.

I had the avocado burger, and it was quite tasty. I liked their "special sauce". Came with a side of fries. Ordered water with it which came in a quart-sized mason jar which was cute and practical on a hot day.More

We had breakfast there on the recommendation of hotel front desk. The omelet I ordered was bland beyond belief, the house "those Potatoes" were cold. My wife ordered french toast which also came out cold. The place was not very busy and I would certainly...avoid this place in the future.More

Visited based on a recommendation from a food tour we did on the strip the day prior. Delicious breakfast, nice portions but not over the top huge. Exactly as described, classic from scratch good old home cooking! My husband had the pork and green chili...omelette with the potatoes and homemade wheat toast and I had a classic eggs and bacon breakfast with the potatoes and homemade banana bread. We would definitely visit again if we’re in the area!More

Sorry I don't remember exactly but my daughter who has been a vegaterian for over 25 years ate there and went back the next day. It must have had something. I doubt you'd be disappointed.
