We throughly enjoyed our breakfast at Shmeg’s. Coffee was delicious. I enjoyed my chubby sandwich. Homemade bread was so tasty. My husband loved the Plate XM. Too much for him to finish. We will definitely return here.

Omg if your looking for a great and filling breakfast, this is the place to be. They make their own bread and sausage. The wait is well worth it in my opinion. They need a bigger place!
