Food is tasty and the setting is nice but it tends to get very busy and often with long lines. I would recommend to go early and give your self time before you are seated.

This is a typical breakfast/diner type food restaurant. We went for breakfast and have a satisfactory experience. Typically there's a line on weekends as it's one of the only breakfast restaurants in town. Breakfast was fine. Didn't wow me but it was totally adequate.
