You can't go wrong here if you like eggs! I love the omelets, crepes, and the salads here. The atmosphere is great too!

Been coming here since it opened. Creative breakfast all day, great salads and sandwiches too. Lively happy hour scene. Interesting, energetic decor.

I've tried a lot of different dishes here and enjoyed them - French toast, omelets, and other savory egg-based dishes. Food is tasty, quality is consistent. Service is pretty good but can be on the slow side. I find the prices a little high for breakfast food but they do a good job overall.

From the moment we walked in the door, we were greeted, we walked to our table we got greeted along the way, sat down, greeted right away with water. Love that they also had gluten free options and alternatives. Much appreciated!

I love this place! The variety of the menu is great. There are plenty of choices for the people who are picky eaters and the food is always delicious. It's a fun atmosphere, busy but spacious and clean. I love their potato soup, but they don't make it often enough. Although it's a busy restaurant you can get seated fairly... More

Never seen so many choices for eggs Benedict. Both the crab and the California were excellent. Super friendly service, and large table, made it the perfect place for a Sunday breakfast with friends before heading to airport.

I had a Southwest omelet with the Lyonnaise potatoes and sourdough toast. The toast came not buttered with the butter on the side. It was so good and everything was... More
