As we entered the place there was a man complaining about his service (loudly). We didn't experience that at all. The food came quick and was good. The server was excellent and very attentive.

Food was fresh and delicious! The Border Benedict was delicious with amazing poblano sauce and the hash browns were crispy and light. Service was fast and friendly.

Really enjoyable breakfast. Lots of items to choose from. Service was very good and the food was also good. Would absolutely return if in the area. We enjoy local breakfast places over the chain restaurants and clearly, this place is a local favorite.

Great for breakfast, went to the BY three out of four days. Food always served fresh and hot, omelets were great. There is definitely a wide variety of offerings. Prices were great as well.

This was a recommendation from the hotel for breakfast. The meals were HUGE and really really good. The prices are a little more than what I would pay for breakfast, but it's California and there was plenty to share. I don't think you will be disappointed.

Fresh and Large breakfast items -- can even order more than breakfast. Food is great, large portions and fast service. Place fills up fast so expect to wait if having a late breakfast. Will definitely be back.
