We went to the small purple castle location! They can seat up to 14 people inside and 24 outside! It was freezing, so we sat inside. The server was SO SWEET! The food was OUTSTANDING!!!!! I would recommend this to anyone with a big appetite!...More

The food itself was good. They are a cash only restaurant. The atmosphere, so so for my friend and I. Maybe we are the wrong generation. We are in our 70,s

Plenty of food. The hashbrows are made by the chef grading a potato right over the grill. Excellent service and breakfast to die for. A must visit.

The food was good and large portions. The restaurant is cash only, but does have ATM on site. The staff was friendly and helpful.

Don't forget to bring cash as they do not accept credit cards. The food was good, atmosphere fun. Will go again!

Our group of four got all that we wanted for breakfast. The hashed browns were prepared well (crispy on outside; moist inside). Omelettes were good-sized. Service was attentive.

I agree with ordering it from their website. Our waitress told us locally you can find it at Trader Joe's and Whole Foods, but our California stores don't carry them. We also loved the green chili sauce!
