When I travel, I dont like eating at places I can go to at home. Althought it looks like this is a chain, it was new to me. And even though it is a chain, it felt like a local mom-and-pop place, which I really like. The place is very informal, yet personal. The service was quick and friendly, even... More

Even though there has always been a wait to be seated here it is worth it. Their breakfast anytime is wonderful. The choice of the old standard eggs, meat, hash browns and toast has never been a disappointment.
