Had one of their breakfast specials, big enough to share, friendly staff, reasonable pricing. my only question is, who serves toast dry, and not hot enough to melt butter (after a special request is made)? was that an oversight, or is it the new way breakfast toast is served these days? (don't go out for breakfast that much). Anyway, would... More

We love to stop here for breakfast as we leave following our annual week in the woods! Breakfast is solid and consistently good, coffee is Seattle's Best and bottomless, and their home-made cinnamon roll is best shared ... a great cinnamon flavored roll topped with whipped buttercream frosting. Small space, so you might have to wait on a busy morning.... More

We had a delicious breakfast. I had a veggie omelet with crispy fries and husband had eggs with French toast and sausage patty. It is very small with not a lot of tables. Our only complaint was the heat was cranked so high it was roasting.

This is a small restaurant with very great food and very good service. I tried the crepes and foud them to be delicious and covered with berries. My wife tried the veggie scramble with a large fruit cup. Delicious! We will probably go back for breakfast here while we are in the area.

We were a party of four and all ordered different breakfast items. Each of us thought we had the best breakfast!! Service was excellent, the coffee hot and the food was something to rave about and recommend. We highly recommend the Black Beans & Spinach with scrambled eggs; the homemade daily quiche ($6.50 add fruit for $1.00 more); and the... More

Great food and service at this hole in the wall location. Outdoor seating a little crowded and rough.
