It, along with the home fries and wheat toast (best ever... More

Stopped in here on a day trip to Galena with my daughter based on Trip Advisor reviews. Very nice place with excellent food. She had the cinnamon French toast and I had an omelette with apples and Gorgonzola. Both were excellent. Well balanced and diversified menu with something for everyone.

Loved this place. The food was amazing. I had the egg tacos and my son had the banana nut French toast. After I finished my plate I moved onto my son's dish. (He's 5 so he couldn't eat the whole thing)The French toast was out of this world. The atmosphere was so cozy. I'm looking forward to my next trip... More
