I had breakfast here every day and enjoyed it. Good quality American breakfast at a fair price. Looking for five-star waiter service? Go elsewhere. Looking for good quality American breakfast? Go here

We had lunch at the Constitution Cafe. Although a little pricey and crowded, the food was good and the line went fast. I suggest someone find a table while the others stand in line. Tables are something that have to be fought for.
