This is a real small place that only seats about 10-15 people but the food is fresh and the service is great. Nothing fancy just good food, great prices and friendly folks.

The restaurant is small and homey. The food was very good and plentiful. The only complaint was the water for the tea was not as hot as it should be.

Alternative Kitchen uses fresh local organic eggs, and has a large selection for breakfast and lunch. Offers breakfast all day. Generous portions.

I liked the easy going atmosphere and that the staff bent over backwards to make sure we were satisfied.

We found this place by accident and decided to try it. The "Matt Special" version of juevos rancheros was good. The french toast was excellent - we selected the multigrain bread. The bacon was also excellent - thick slab, cooked to a crisp and not at all greasy, but with great flavour.

One drawback is the restroom. There is a door into the kitchen in the restroom that is left open when the restroom is not in use (to aid ventilation), which seems a questionable practice.
