My son and I stopped by for breakfast the morning of day 2 of the draft. Excellent, friendly service by Scarlet. Great eggs and peppers on long roll. My son loved the potatoes with peppers and melted cheese. Much better than a hotel breakfast!

Food was excellent. We had cheesesteak, omelet and a club that could have fed two of us! Our server was Scarlet and she was great. She and the entire staff were very friendly and helpful.
