We were lucky to find this place next door to our hotel, Le Meridien. The hotel breakfast is super overpriced, and here right next store was a reasonably priced place making full to order breakfasts. The home fries were really good with peppers and onions, and good omelets and grits too. They have Tom's Nectar for juices and that is... More

We were told we can sit anywhere we wanted. The waitress was funny and very helpful. Breakfast came out pretty quick,... More

I needed lunch during a short lunch break. As such, I stopped in here. I was treated immediately. Danielle was my server- very friendly, great suggestions, accommodating and fast. My cheese steak wrap was very good. It came with mango and black beans. I never had that before. It was really light and really tasty. A good alternative to fries.... More

Luckily for me, the surrounding area had a lot of options for breakfast, including Foods on First. I gave it a try and was not disappointed. The staff are amazing. It seemed as if everyone who walked in, the staff... More

Food was excellent. We had cheesesteak, omelet and a club that could have fed two of us! Our server was Scarlet and she was great. She and the entire staff were very friendly and helpful.

This was a delicious and inexpensive breakfast stop right in the city center. This place is welcoming, warm and clean. Jen was our lovely and courteous wait person. She made great suggestions and made sure we were well satisfied. She did not miss a beat on keeping our coffee cups full of fresh coffee. The menu is chalk full of... More

My husband was desperate to try a philly cheese steak and the server gave great advice about what locals tended to eat on their sandwiches so he was able to order and eat what he wanted. Food was tasty and came quickly and prices were reasonable. There was some Eagles merchandise on the wall which was exciting and the staff... More

The Philly burger was delicious and the service outstanding. Excellent value as well. The only regret is not having taken a photo with Miss... More
