This is the place to go in the area for a hearty well cooked breakfast. Everything on the menu is good. Recently moved into a new location on the main drag (US 70) but food is still as good as ever. Not a big place so prepare for a crowd at peak times.

Never miss it when we're... More

We were on our way to the rail museum and stopped for breakfast. The staff was friendly and the food was good. The restaurant was very clean. There were several locals having coffee there as well. Good place to go for breakfast or lunch if in the area.

the area of Quincy & Portola. Friendly staff and clean establishment. Try the cheese burger with homemade macaroni salad. Juicy and cooked the way you want it! Large breakfast selection, hash browns were exceptionally crispy and fresh. Can't go wrong with eggs and sausage.
