My husband said to give the biscuits and gravy a 5! I ate part of his hash browns and they were excellent. I was pleasantly surprised by the fruit - fresh and delicious and the tuna was very good as well. A do again:)

Prices are extremely reasonable, coffee is served in a huge mug, all the wait staff were friendly, and my breakfast burrito was the best I've had with a wonderful spicy salsa served on the side. I highly recommend First Street Cafe!
