Very friendly staff, good menu, and excellent kitchen. Nice distribution, good space between tables, even on a crowded morning it feels spacious.

Very popular - tucked away in a small store front parking lot ... may have a wait for a table. Breakfast is the best - a bit above area chain restaurants. Pies are popular as well - especially take out.

This has become our favorite spot for breakfast. Food is great and large servings. Staff treat you like family. Prefer my omelette as a scramble. Not as dry as omelette and all the flavor. Great baked goods.
