They have genuinely FRESHLY SQUEEZED orange and grapefruit juice! Had the cornmeal blueberry pancakes, really different, and husband loved his huevos rancheros. They actually had a doggie menu with interesting options, and automatically refilled the dogs' water dish too. Loved this place! Excellent friendly service.
