We've been to the popular Breakfast House several times. We've never been disappointed. There are interesting menu choices. There's usually a wait, which is a good sign. There's ample parking and places to sit while you wait.

Delicious breakfast choices, from basic bacon and eggs to gussied up variations on eggs benedict in a charming retro setting. Egg white scramble with veggies was delicious. Despite a full restaurant, service was attentive, with quick turn around.

Great menu of choices and great food! Very reasonable priced too! It needs more room for six foot tall men and a little less "tea room" decor.
