Visiting during the busy Veterans' Day holiday weekend. Was able to sit outside after a brief wait. The staff was very attentive and friendly. Breakfast was excellent at a reasonable price.

Easy access to the restaurant. Staff was very friendly and the food portions were very generous. If you eat breakfast there you provably won't need lunch.
