This visit was after my wife and 2 of her friends ran a 10k race a couple blocks away. Perfect after race meal for them. Love this franchise which normally when you say franchise it has bad connotations. Not here. They use fresh produce and try to use locally grown products which help support the independent providers business. Great! Today... More

Excellent menu with a nice variety of selections (heathy alternatives). Something for everyone. Fresh ingredients. Excellent laying of flavors tantalizing the tastebuds. Warm and welcoming staff who were non-judgmental with multiple orders. Never heard the lamented phrase "No Problem"!

Wonderful breakfast place with lots of healthy options! We all ended up ordering the daily special, a not so healthy pot roast skillet...eggs over a delicious heap of potatoes and roast beef....but there were many options to choose from, will return next time I am visiting family there to explore the menu further!

This was our first visit. The food is average, but the portions are huge - much too big for one person. Service was slow, but the restaurant was busy.

My wife and I stopped in for brunch on a Tuesday. She likes the fresh and different ingredients used here. The service was good and the food came out quickly. My wife had an omelet and I had the BLTE. The food was delicious and the portions just right. I'm sure we will be back.

Wife and I were meeting a friend for lunch. We were seated, server coffee and while we waited for our third party to arrive, no hostess came and offered any further service for 35 minutes. When our third arrived, our order was taken and served promptly. I discussed not leaving tip with my wife and friend and was talked into... More
