I dine here 3 times a week, at a minimum. The food is always good. Amazing scrambles, delicious coffee, awesome homemade dressings and green chili. The pastries are incredible too!

We had lunch and breakfast there. It was nice having both options no matter the time of day. Food was really tasty and healthier choices were available. Liked the outdoor seating area so we could bring our dog. Pecan sticky buns were delicious!!
