This place rocks. Incredible breakfasts especially. Love the service, the amazing food, the watermelon juice, just everything. Wish they had a bike rack for my bike though!

Wow! Oysters and crabcakes in the desert? You betcha - and as good as any east coast meal I've had. I love the Tune Up because they always mix it up by searching for the best seasonal items. The preparation and atmosphere are superb. Our...More

Yes, we did see several people, seated on the patio tables outside, who brought their dogs.
Do they allow dogs on the patio?
