We had a large group of 13. We got items from both the breakfast and lunch menu. Everything was delicious and fresh. Even though it was busy, service was excellent and our server was attentive. Can't wait to go back!

We really enjoyed our breakfast here. It's a busy place...we had to wait about 20 minutes for a table, but they have coffee while you wait, which I thought was very nice and made the wait not seem as long. I had pancakes...delicious! My girlfriend...More
