We chose this from great ratings and it did not disappoint. Starting with a menu with tremendous amount of great choices, we got great food. The "sides"that came with the omelettes were full size portions.I had a delicious, fresh blueberry muffin. Our group had breakfasts to include pancakes, omelettes, eggs, sausage, steak,muffins, bisquets,fresh fruit....everything was great.If I had the time,... More

We had a party of 11 on a Sunday morning and they were quick to accommodate us. There is a really large selection of meals available (almost too much as we couldn't decide). We had heard about the cinnamon roll but we were still shocked by the size of it. We had enough left-over cinnamon roll for dinner the next... More

The food was absolutely wonderful and delicious. Must get here for breakfast or lunch because not open for dinner. Other than that it was fantastic! Everything you can think of there and it is hard to choose since there is such a wide selection. Not skimpy meals and the cinnamon roll must weigh 5 pounds. (I took one to our... More

I forgot just how big!! Biscuits are flaky & moist, gravy is peppery. Omelette done with tasty bite size morsels, coffee never got cold. Still has vintage toys on display everywhere and the place was packed at 10:00 on Monday.

We have eaten at too many of these local diners to count. This ranks with the best of them. The positives: great menu, clean restaurant, fair prices, portions large enough to split, quick service despite the crowds they get, good tasting food, close to but not in Old Town Temecula. The negatives: nothing.

Great place to meet friends and family for brunch. Staff is willing to shift tables around for a group. Biggest sweet rolls we have seen since Iowa! They are served warm & smell so good. We served 6 people with one roll & still couldn't eat it all! All servings are hefty, you might want to split a meal with... More

Our daughter chose this for her birthday brunch. It was very good, busy, we waited a few for the only back patio table available. Server was sweet, food was excellent, and portions are giant- They also brought out some sort of birthday cinnamon roll that was on the house- EPIC!
