Wonderful selection, quality, and portions. Fabulous service from Victoria. She was so loving and patient w the kids. The perfect lunch spot on a chilly day before a college basketball game.

We stopped for a quick lunch on a cold winter day based on a recommendation and were very pleased. Soup was warm and very filling. Tremendous value for the money and the quality was excellent.

Like others, we fell upon this breakfast spot when the "other" corner breakfast spot was backed up with a 45 minute line out the door. Decor is beyond simple but boasts an innovative breakfast menu at a very inexpensive price point. Go for the peach...More

Two words. Spud Nuggets. Hard to describe, like home made tater tots, seasoned, frozen, cut, fried, served. Unreal. Oh yes, the Chorizo Grilled Cheese? Holy heart attack. Insanely delish.
