Nice place to meet centrally for breakfast. Typical service and food. Plenty of seating. The parking lot is small but free.

Ordered the carrot cake pancake which was delicious. The frittata was ok nothing to rave about. This location was easy to find. The waitress could have been more attentive but was too busy socializing with the solo businessman behind us.

Stopped here with a friend while on vacation. The menu is really interesting & different. Tried the Avocado Toast & it was great. Went back another time for soup & a sandwich & that was equally good. It's a chain but a worthwhile stop!
