We go here for breakfast about every couple of months. Enjoy the new decor. They have new entrees to try every month or so, including several healthful options. It's a popular place, so be prepared to wait for a table. They have self-serve coffee (free)...More

Great pancake and waffle variety to choose from, with fruits and other toppings. Better for early meal than lunch in my view and exceeds the quality at their other location in the Muddy Branch shopping center. Keep the juice and coffee coming!

We visited for brunch with friends who highly recommended the restaurant. The restaurant is very popular and busy - we had to wait quite a bit to be seated. I had the inspired Italian omelette, which was good, but I wouldn't call it exceptional.

No, I don't think they take reservations. But they do have free coffee and copies of the Post to help pass the time.
