Excellent selection of "better" and healthier meals. Vege chili outstanding. Portions large. Nice specialty drinks available and service is excellent. Chef gets it. Not your standard diner. Prices extremely reasonable.

When I saw this chrome-plated restaurant, I had to try it for breakfast. The service was fine. The interior is as appealing as the exterior. If you order scrambled eggs, you might want to ask for them well done. I would return without hesitation.

Always reliable for fresh tasty food. Appreciate the seasonal menus with locally-sourced ingredients. Lots of low calorie dishes, clearly labeled, also good veggie selection. Omelets are especially good.
