Visited this place for breakfast and it was packed! I didn’t mind waiting a few minutes because it’s a small place and the food is always amazing. It’s honestly a great value for the food! It’s a must try if you are in the area.

The perfect antidote to jet lag or even after a short walk! Great start to the day, friendly service and good food. Portions are large but service is quick. The atmosphere is loud and buzzy with all of the activity. Not to be missed.

After a short wait our group of four was shown to a private room behind the hostess counter. The service was friendly and efficient. Omelets, griddle cakes, bacon and potatoes all very good. Fresh squeezed orange juice too.

I was staying in downtown Phoenix and looking for a local breakfast eatery behind the chains near the convention center. This place delivered local breakfast charm with a nice selection of breakfast plates complete with gourmet bacon. The prices are very reasonable and staff is...More

Definitely! It has to be one of their busiest days! Come early or bring something to read or someone to talk to, as You may have to wait depending on your arrival time. It's worth the wait!
