This can be a bit of a wait, you order at the front and they bring the food to your table. We got the huevos rancheros which was a big portion and very good. The coffee is self serve with $1 refills. Consider coming here...More

Great breakfast with nice choices. My husband & I don’t always agree on restaurants but this was an exception. We loved the omelets and fresh fruit. Their hot tea was also great. Looking forward to another visit.

Portions were huge ! Order food at table and it is brought over. Water is self serve. Will be going back! Wish they were open later than breakfast -2pm I would go for dinner for sure.

The presentation of the food was so nice and my croissant breakfast sandwich was the best I have ever had. My husband had the special with sausage and eggs. This dish was also very good. I would highly recommend this cafe!

Went with 4 people mid-morning on a Saturday in September and didn't have a problem getting in. Great food all around (spicy mexi eggs were delightful, as were the breakfast burritos and a special breakfast sandwich on croissant) and you can't go wrong getting one...More
