They have the best breakfast in town. Omelettes are to die for!! All breakfast items are delicious. Restaurant could use some updating, but service and food is outstanding.

I've never been as enamored of this place as many of my friends are. Good, but typical breakfast fare. Large omelettes. Good coffee. Solid, but not extraordinary.

We went for brunch today with family. There was plenty of choice on the menu. Service was friendly and attentive. Food was wholesome and tasty. It was perfect for the kids, as it's not fancy or pretentious. Will be back with the kids.

I had the veggie skillet with avocado and goat cheese and my husband had the breakfast burrito. I had a bite of his and both were amazing!

Open for breakfast & lunch only. They have simple diner food but still offer a few luxury adds on such as feta, avocados and goat cheese. Good omlette, skillet, sandwich and salad options. Nice kids menu. Wait staff is very curtious and service is quick....More

Had breakfast here and always love the special of eggs, crisp bacon, toast and O'Brien potatoes. It is always the same and very delicious. Great service, good coffee, and great food!
