This place has become one of our favorite Sunday Morning breakfast joints. I love their 'Our Famous Jackpot' breakfast. Sausage, bacon, eggs and pancakes, yum. The place is always busy on Sunday so get in early. Coffee was good.

We went for a quick lunch last weekend and while I am happy to say we had a great wait staff experience, the coffee seemed to not be quite right? A coffee shop with coffee issues? Hmmmm. Sometimes you have to re-learn to clean the...More
