I had a chicken sandwhich. It was better than the food at Quincy's! The wait staff is polite and attentive, the food fresh and fairly priced.

Saturday morning place to enjoy a quiet breakfast. We've eaten here a few times and keep coming back for more breakfast burritos or biscuits n gravy. Portions are enormous, but you can order a half. Great service and a gorgeous mountain view.
