Great breakfast with my family! Food was served promptly and hot! Service was awesome, always there to refill my coffee and checking if anything else was needed! Love this place.....get there early because there is usually a wait for their REAL food.

Food is always delicious. The sandwiches are my favorite, they are fresh and portions are large. The breakfast is also great if that is what you are in the mood for. Coffee is free before 11 am and the staff is on the ball.

Service is wonderful. Great staff, very attentive and happy, and they work as a team. The food is good, didn't blow me away though. Small looking, diner like place, not really a hole in the wall, but close. I'd come back for the staff alone.

I love the breakfast MonteCristo and the potatoes with cheese and onions! This is an excellent diner style place for classic and some unexpected breakfast and lunch items. Always has great service too!
