go here for breakfast. This is right across the street from the Sheraton and the breakfast was fantastic and much cheaper ... we went on Saturday so had a choice of a la carte or buffet. The omelet and waffle station were made to order and then you can pick up plenty of proteins and carbs. A little short on... More

We had a nice breakfast here. My cousin had the buffet and I had a Waffle. We both enjoyed it very much. It is not inexpensive but the food was good.

I ate breakfast here several times while attending a meeting in the area. The meals were nicely prepared and the service was welcoming and prompt. On Sunday breakfast is a buffet rather than a la carte. A line of cooks prepared omelets and other dishes to order and judging by the many diners the buffet is a favorite of local... More

The waitress was friendly and quick. The food on the other hand was not so great. I ordered a Spanish omelette and I got an omelette with cheese and jalapenos with some salsa on the side. It came with home fries, but they were cold.

POTENTIAL SALMONELLA?!?! NEVER AGAIN! Visiting from out of town, this place was near our hotel. They served my very young daughter chicken fingers that were so raw inside she thought the pink was that they had somehow cooked tomatoes with chicken. Manager seemed sorry, but geez - glad I get to stress over a child with potential serious food poisoning... More

Stopped by based on reviews for lunch. Probably should have ordered breakfast since that looks to be the most popular. Anyway, ordered iced tea and received in a dirty glass. Ok, no biggie, got a new one. Wanted to order chicken lunch special but, they were out. So, I ordered the gyro sandwich. Unfortunately, fries and gyro were super salty.... More

I love this place. Atmosphere, great staff and good food. Whenever I'm in Alexandria on a Sunday I make sure I get here for brunch. It is great. I am always happy with my meal.

Some of the locals told us it was the best breakfast in town. It was our only breakfast but wouldn't dispute it. They had a full menu along with a full buffet with made to order omelets and waffles. They didn't hold back like many buffets and they moderately priced and pretty darn yummy! Best Breakfast in town? I'm good... More

I had high expectations for this restaurant and was slightly let down. I went for breakfast and wasn't too impressed with the food. I had a Belgium Waffle and tea for breakfast. The tea was great, but my waffle was cold. It was so cold, it didn't melt the room temperature butter I put on it. On a positive note,... More
