This is the second time we have had breakfast there and have enjoyed it each time. We have had breakfast plates with combinations of eggs, ham, steak, sausages and bacon, as well as Mexican style food and wraps. We have not been disappointed.

The omelets are spectacular, service is great. We knew it was good when we saw Boston police and other locals enjoying food here. :)
