We waited for about 10 min outside, but you expect that on a Sunday morning. Well worth the wait. Service was good, food was great! I had biscuits and gravy with hash browns. Delicious! We will be coming back. Probably get here earlier than 10am.

We always search out local restaurants. This restaurant did not disappoint. The menu was very creative for a breakfast spot. The service was good and fast. Overall, the experience was very good but not up to par with a 5-star restaurant.

Great place for a hearty breakfast. Great breakfast spot in Duluth. Breakfast and lunch menus. It can be crowded, but it is run like a well-oiled machine and tables open up quickly. My husband says the “tailgater” breakfast has delicious kielbasa. There isn’t anything fancy...More

We stopped for lunch here. I was hoping they would have home made soup here. They had TWO choices today, Tomato basil or Beef Noodle soup. I had the tomato with a hamburger. Very good! Soup was hot with tomato chunks.

Wonderful Tomato Basil Soup! The Omelet Plates are generous! Marble Rye for the Grilled Cheese was delicious! The service was quick and the restroom was Unisex, but clean. I would definitely eat here again! Close to Essentia Hospital and downtown!
