Trip Advisor ranked this pretty highly for breakfast and it was pretty good. It’s nice that it’s a couple steps off the beaten path. We got one egg dish and oatmeal. The egg dish was their breakfast burrito and I chose the vegetarian sausage version....More

We had to wait 30 minutes or so but it was well worth it. Our server was very personable and gave us excellent service. My husband’s blueberry pancakes were almost like crepes, totally delicious. I had the Monte Cristo. It wasn’t traditional but very rich...More
