We picked this place because when look for the best French Toast in the area this popped up as #1. Have to say my initial impression wasn’t good. When we arrived they weren’t very busy but still took about 5 minutes to get our menu....More

My guess is the Lunchbox today looks pretty much like it always has. A bit worn out, but popular and inexpensive. We went for the first time on a Saturday about 1 o'clock and had the $6 breakfast special. You essentially walk-in at the kitchen...More
