Awesome breakfast and very reasonable. Mostly locals which is always a good sign. Staff is friendly and the food was delicious. Three breakfasts with coffees and a bottle of water for less then a double sawbuck.

This place is just so friendly. I love that they have a rotating menu and the people who work there really seem to care about being nice. When I was on a diet, I asked for a meal without french fries, and they suggested a...More
