My son and I went twice in a 7-day span. We like that they serve their full menu all day. Love the array of veggies offered, and the fact that the chicken tenders are made there is outstanding. Not frozen. Loved the grilled cheese, corn...More

Had breakfast here and was not overly impressed with food. Had their scrambler and it was a bit dry for my taste. To each their own
