Fresh and Large breakfast items -- can even order more than breakfast. Food is great, large portions and fast service. Place fills up fast so expect to wait if having a late breakfast. Will definitely be back.

My god this place is good. You may have to wait a few minutes for a table but it's worth it. I defy anyone to be dissatisfied with the food here. It's an all American breakfast heaven. Great service and ambiance too.

We came here on recommendation and as a cure for jet lag! We both had fantastic omelettes. I had cheddar, avocado turkey bacon and jalapeños with home fries and a biscuit.

We waited 30 minutes after we ordered ... the food was just ok. Not worth the wait. Place was very best. Would not go again.

We stopped here for breakfast after hearing good reviews and we were not disappointed. My partner still goes on about the chicken fried steak and eggs! The food was great and so was the service. I though the price was decent too. I would definitely recommend and will be returning as soon as possible.
