This restaurant seems to be very popular as well it should be. Great little breakfast spot- parking and lines attest to its popularity. We had the raspberry french toast- good. Great coffee. Quick service once your seated and very efficient staff.

German potato pancakes, everything made from scratch. It is the place for breakfast. Guy Fieri even kicked up some dishes when he visited for his show. You don't have to look hard to find the dish with jalapeno's to know which one.
