This restaurant is right across from the city parking garage near The Lawn. We wandered over there after walking around campus. Good find. Breakfast was great. Perfect poached eggs and real, actual biscuits. Also at my table - very good and big breakfast burrito and...More

We came in just before closing and started with the coffee cakes - OK, nothing great. French toast and eggs with biscuits were top notch. Monte Cristo was good but a bit too cheesy.

TINY spot for breakfast. It was cold so we didn't want to eat outside. We ended up sitting at the small counter they have. Not sure if people normally eat there...the waitresses were all nice, the food really delicious. Many different options on the menu....More
