My spouse and I stopped for a mid morning breakfast and what a treat. She had the special French toast with blueberries and raspberry sauce. WOW! I had scrambled eggs with cheese and link sausage w/ hash browns. Great!

The breakfasts here are simply outstanding. So many tasty french toast & pancake offerings. There are also some good choices for variations of eggs Benedict. Service is also top-notch.
