Nobody seated us. We grabbed our own table. The menu was okay. The food was good. The plates of food came out one at a time. By the time the 4th person got their food the 1st one was finished. Very busy on Sunday morning.

Our group of four had a great breakfast here last week. Two of us had Belgian waffles that were crisp on the outside (so many places make them soggy) and delicious. The service was top-notch for a diner and the interior is done up in...More

It's very obvious and noticeable that most of the servers have a bad attitude. Customer service is key when being a server and it's not hard to put a smile on your face. They mainly focus on refilling coffee, which is great but waiting until...More
