My wife and I stop here for lunch frequently on a nice day. The front patio offers a comfortable, shaded table for a casual lunch on a nice day.

The food is consistently good though nothing stands out on the menu. Parking plentiful both on the street and in the metered lot across the street. The only slight flaw is that the service is spotty - sometimes quite good and at other times, such as our most recent visit, very slow with intervention required to get refills of water or coffee.

Overall, a favorite stop for the location and the simple, well-prepared food.

Love this place for breakfast. The menu is great offering every possible concoction you would want for breakfast. I always have the breakfast burrito with spicy chorizo, eggs, and potatos.
I like the homey feeling sitting inside on cold mornings. It also has a large outdoor sitting area outside.
This place is owned by locals and we always have super friendly staff taking our orders. Have met and started great conversation with strangers because that's the kind of pleasant people who go there.
Would definitely recommend.

Visited with a friend of a friend while visiting from the UK. So glad we did, had a lovely evening, eating outside, friendly staff, and great food. Would gladly go back for more.

Sep. 25, we are seated outside at a casual wooden table, but comfortable. The service is provided by Aimee, friendly and professional. The meal is authentic and tasteful, four Cobb Salads and one Benedict. All well prepared and well served. To try again when in the surroundings.

We went to this place a few years ago and had a pretty awful experience at lunch. We tried it again last week for breakfast. We arrived around 9:15 and we were the only ones there (they had to turn on the lights in our section). The food was ok, the coffee tasted old and bitter. Sunny side eggs wee up undercooked, and toast was a single piece of bread cut in two. After several others were seated we noticed how loud the room was - lots of hard surfaces. The music was quite load and not great for the am. I would not return for breakfast as there are several places nearby that are better.
