One of our favorite breakfast spots to visit, before we head out on an out of town journey. Fast service, decent food, cordial staff,and reasonable prices. Convenient on/off access to major 405 Freeway.

This place has a good breakfast with decent proportions. (better than a Denneys) Stick to breakfast. We had a gift certificate and so we visited for dinner. Sadly, the dinner meal just wasn't anything worth returning for.

I love this place. Everything here is terrific from fish and chips to even just a sandwich. I usually order breakfast regardless of the time of day. It is one of the only places that can make me a better breakfast then I can make myself. So minus the hassle and clean up by just coming here and enjoying the... More
