Great place. Good food at an affordable price. Service was good, and they even gave us coffee to go! You have to try their sweet potato egg dish, really good!

Early Girl breakfast is extraordinary. Today I had a cheese and vegetable omelette with sides of home fries and whole wheat toast. It was a delicious and satisfying meal.
