I had breakfast for lunch here yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed it. The food was good, the staff friendly and there is plenty of parking in the lot out back. Well worth a try.

Come here quite often food and service is always good, a great somewhat upscale breakfast with great coffee spot.

I often meet a coworker for breakfast. EHC never lets you down. Great choices, interesting options (b'fast quinoa bowl for example) and add-ins for your omlette. Can't go wrong. They do it with style.

I've been here so many times--at various locations and they are very consistent! Love it when you order coffee and they leave an insulated carafe on the table. Breakfast offerings are pretty much standard fare: eggs, bacon, sausage, pancakes, you-know-the-drill...but I think their potatoes are...More
