The best breakfast I have ever had. They know how to cook eggs perfectly. Service is always good. Try not to go there on weekends if you don’t want to wait in line, it can be a long wait.

Fabulous food and authentic environment. The staff are very friendly and helpful. It was a lovely way to start the day. I met the owner who was fabulous and took a real interest in our family, a really lovely lady.
