I have not been to the new one in Junction City but my friends and I regularly stop into the University Ave. location for lunch. The menu is surprisingly varied with many different salads, soups and breakfast and lunch entrees. They are not open for dinner at either place. Last time I had the shrimp tacos and they are very...

My son ordered the Caprese chicken focaccia sandwich. He loved it. My husband and I ordered the breakfast special -- triple berry stuffed French toast. It was wonderful. We will definitely go there again.

This place has some "fine dining" items on the menu WITHOUT the fine dining prices. C'mon, $8.99 for a pork belly omelet? And another that has white truffle oil? These prices are a steal for the quality and variety of ingredients. Came in around 11:30 on a Saturday morning and while they were doing a brisk business, the wait was... More

I will definitely need to go back to try other options. The staff was very friendly and prompt. All staff worked well together to service all the customers. Reasonable prices... More

We visited the new location in Peoria Heights for breakfast. They have a great menu with lots of creative choices for omelets, benedicts, and other favorites. I had the pork belly omelet and my wife had the Diablo Benedict. Both were beautifully presented, with great flavors and ample portions. The side dishes were also tasty. I had the cheddar grits...

A long-time, locally owed restaurant in Peoria has just opened their newest location at Junction City. We stopped here around 1 PM Sunday, and the place was packed! We opted to eat at the bar (open seating) rather than get in line for a table. There is also seating outside. The menu is loaded with great selections with breakfast being... More

This is a great place to eat with family or friends. Since it is so popular be prepared to wait for a seat on the weekends. It's worth it! So many fun choices to choose from for lunch and breakfast!! Would recommend🙂
