Super reasonable prices, varied menu, thick cut bacon, fluffy pancakes and a well run, cohesive serving crew that work together and support each other. Shout out to Monica who spoiled us, and Fidel, who kept the glasses full.

Good wide choice of all things American breakfast. I fancied an omelette with chillies in it so ordered a chilli omelette. What I didn't realise that it would be an omelette filled with chilli meat sauce. Nonetheless it was really good. Busy, friendly, quick, tasty.
