One can almost always count on a line waiting to be seated which is a testament to the delicious food. The line moves quickly and once... More

The place has been around for a long time, but it was just average food as far as breakfast goes. Nothin special or outstanding. I would go back and maybe try lunch items.

If you come here. Ordered the seafood combo, and after splitting a "crock" of clam chowder with my wife there was no way to eat it all.

Delicious breakfast with large portions and many extra items that go with the omelets. I ordered the Spanish omelette which was delicious and gigantic. It came with a glass of juice, sliced fruit on the plate, choice of toast and a lively garnish spike on the side. And a choice of hash browns or grits. Honestly who could eat all... More

Great service and incredible French Toast. The Cinnamon Almond French Toast is worth the visit. The cream cheese French Toast is really good too.

We come here when we are in the area and they always serve very good food! Their cinnamon almond French toast is to die for! Plan on waiting because there is usually a line out the door, but so worth it!
