We stumbled onto this place and ended up going for breakfast. Plenty of choices with more than enough food. French toast was excellent as was everything else our family ordered. Very reasonably priced and low key but busy.

From Scratch is true to its name and delivers delicious breakfast! We sat outside on the lovely patio, with heaters to keep us warm on a somewhat-chilly but sunny day. I had a breakfast skillet with red potatoes and peppers & mushrooms, but the real stars were homemade (from scratch, get it?) vegetarian sausage and pork sausage patties. The pork... More

Food was so yummy and service was fast. It was a little confusing that we had about 3-4 servers come up to us during our stay, but maybe that was just because they wanted to serve us quickly?

Looked for a place to meet up with a friend and have a nice breakfast. We settled on a convenient location at this restaurant. The staff, service and food was beyond expectations. We were seated immediately, drinks, food and bill came all within 45 minutes. Incredible, I'll be back.

Trip Advisor & DDD have once again led me to a fabulous eatery. It was a bit difficult to locate being tucked in the corner of the plaza. The cafe was warm and welcoming on a chilly morning. We were able to secure a seat next to the fireplace. The waitstaff was prompt and efficient in taking our drink order.... More

We visited the place with my family as a result of a good review we saw. Boy was it true! Gigantic portions and quality American breakfast food. French toast, pancakes etc... all at their best. My wife tried a dish with eggs, avocado and chili which was great. Definitely recommended!!

Went in just to see what the complex was about, and our gluten free app said this was a good place. It sure is! The food was excellent, and made from scratch. It's bee on several of the food shows, and their brisket chili is amazing!

We saw this restaurant on Diners, Drive ins and Dives so were excited to try is for breakfast. We ordered the triple d which included the brisket chili which nobody liked. The biscuits and gravy was good and the fried grits were pretty good. All in all, not a huge standout!

We saw this restaurant advertised in a travel program in Australia and it received a great review. Service and food lived up to the review. Great lunch selection and value for money. Service from the 'team' excellent and would revisit anytime

The waiter at Rio Grill told us about this place and glad he did. excellent breakfast and had the traditional egg's bene which came on some really nice oversized muffin with some really good smoked ham. The wife had an omelet which was huge. You must stop here and have breakfast on the way in or out of town. Service... More
