What a great breakfast. I had coffee and read while I waited for my daughter and friend to arrive. I drank half the pot at my table. Good coffee! By the time they arrived I was so hungry we all ordered a signature dish (in...More

We had breakfast there and the food was solid if not exceptional. But the fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice (which I rarely see) was a plus, as was the friendly service and having your own pot of coffee for the table. A bit pricey but it's La...More

Basic diner breakfast. Low end decor and atmosphere. Food was nothing special. Seems to me that there are so many better options in town. Surprisingly enough the place was packed and had a wait to get in. Maybe I’m missing something here.

Super tasty and reasonable! Got one of the breakfast burritos and it was HUGE! The hashbrowns that came with eggs and bacon are also so tasty and the perfect amount of crispy! Staff is nice, really enjoyed my experience.
