Not a bad place for breakfast. The menu is pretty varied but not spectacular. All the food was good, could have been warmer as the eggs and French toast cooled off quickly. Service is friendly and the food came out fast.

Yes, it is pricey for a breakfast compared to other restaurants in the area. But they do have interesting specials that change frequently and huge omelettes.
