If you order the French press, you get a large pot of coffee. I didn't try it but those that I was with said it was delicious. I got the veggie hash which had eggs, butternut squash, beets, collars greens, sweet potato straws and toast. It was amazing and I don't say that often! The menu is extensive. We were... More

Breakfast was delicious. I had the Almond Tres Leches French Toast! I would definitely go back for seconds. Great menu; however, it gets super busy. It's a self setting service. Staff seems very friendly and polite and they have out door seating, as well.

We needed a good hearty breakfast. The wait for a table was too long, so we ended up getting take-out since the weather was cold and we could not sit outside. Delicious omelet with potatoes. My daughter had pancakes and eggs. Nice crispy bacon. Would definitely recommend but the other reviews are correct - if you want a table, get... More

My wife and I while visiting our Son and Daughter in-law visit this restaurant each time we visit from Missouri. I cannot say enough about this little joint. The absolute best benedicts I have ever tasted. We love the outside seating. This place is a must if you find yourself anywhere near Aurora, Co. Cannot wait to return later this... More

This is a really cool place, breakfast/brunch/lunch. No dinner hours! The best place for your not so ordinary breakfast/brunch! Choices are many as you'll see on written menu on the wall. Drinks are coffee, and about everything in a bottle. Prices are good, seats inside are limited, but great patio space to chow down as well! I always go for... More

This place is the epitome of a small hole in the wall gem. The coffee is spectacular and the food is amazing!

Being a group of 8 in a small breakfast diner is hard, but being a group of 8 on the last leg of a two-week road trip makes you stop being fussy and appreciate the finer things, the good service, the punny menu, the excellent food. A friend recommended this place to us and after eating there I understand why.... More

Food and coffee are excellent but the seating is very tight and they do run out of items on the menu later in the morning.

I love ordering food to go from here, everything on their menu is unique and tasty. I just never got a chance to stay and eat here but I'm also very impatient and didn't want to wait for a seat. First come first serve in a small spot. I won't complain, the food makes up for it. Definitely a great... More

We had breakfast today at this small yet amazing restaurant. Food is listed on the menu on the wall. You choose and then order at the counter. My husband had the crab cake benedict. He raved about it. My breakfast was a crepe filled with goodies I chose off the list. Every bite was amazing. I highly recommend this little... More
