Best breakfast in Summitt Co. Excellent service. Very cool interior with ample seating, great coffee, great food. The signature omellett is better than you can make at home and biscuits are better than grandmas.

Unfortunately we do not have heaters on the patio. If the sun is out it is usually warm enough to eat outside by about 9.
