We had been here before but never realized it was the #1 rated restaurant on Trip Advisor for OC.Very generous servings, tasty food and friendly, attentive service. My husband particularly like the waffle flavored with vanilla.

Great place to go for breakfast or lunch. A locals favorite. Excellent food at a fair price. Chef Carmody always makes you feel at home and features great daily specials. A great place to visit on or off season. One of our favorites.
