I ordered the American breakfast with hashed Browns, scrambled eggs and sausage patties. It was GREAT! I especially loved the hashed browns. They were a bit crispy and delicious! There is a crowd in the mornings but it moves fast. Can’t wait to return again!

This place already has great reviews so this is just a confirmation that as of today they still live up to the best coffee shop. Great breakfast and as stated coffee is superb. So good that we ate here all four mornings we were in...More

Great traditional breakfasts for sit down or on the go. Coffee/Coffee drinks that exceed the Major Coffee Chains. Specials often have a French Cuisine twist. Friendly service, but remember fresh food/cooking takes a little time.

Lots of food for the price and very friendly. Had the bagel with avocado and sprouts and could have easily split with someone, coffee was good also.

You'll have to wait for a table Saturday or Sunday but oh so worth it. Staff is friendly and their food is excellent. You will always see the owner, working as hard or harder than her staff.

This cafe is small and you can end up waiting for a table, but it is worth it! The service is great and the food is delicious.
