The German Village Coffee Shop is a small diner that makes a big impression. The staff is friendly and makes sure to make you feel welcome although the place is packed. There are breakfast and lunch options. The pancake is gigantic. They offer daily lunch...More

This is the perfect local “hole in the wall” place for breakfast. You know the roll out of bed kind of place. Nothing not one thing I can say that is negative. If you want good coffee and a full belly then this is the...More

We wound up in this location during an overnight at an AirB&B in the neighborhood. As a place to get a good, cheap breakfast, you can't beat it. My western omelette was a good American-style, with the onions, peppers and ham mixed into the eggs....More

Great place to grab an inexpensive breakfast, the coffee is really good. It's a hole in the wall but don't under estimate, best "greasy spoon" in the city.

Best breakfast in town. Homemade, eggs cooked to order, nothing fancy, just a great breakfast. The hash browns are amazing, large serving of bacon. The coffee flows freely. Small coffee shop, always busy, but turnover is quick. I cannot wait to go back. They always...More
