While always busy I have never received bad service and the food is always fantastic. Must have the scrambled eggs on parmesan toast with bacon.

Great staff and great food!! Went over and above to help and make sure we had what we wanted. Food is top quality and great choice. Coffee is best in the area (few good places around! And the thick shakes are special (meal in themselves)!
