Had a quick breakfast here with my husband. Overall, decent place but not the best we've had. Lots of menu options- almost too overwhelming. We both just made our own omelettes which were good, but a little pricey. We liked that we had the option for fruit vs potatoes with our meal. Their pumpkin pancakes were also delicious.

They have no idea what they are doing. The food was good but you could never be sure if you got the food you actually ordered. The service was extremely slow.

We were recommended this place for breakfast and it didn't disappoint. We had waffles which were very nice along with orange juice. Well worth a visit.

Our last morning in the USA so my wife and I decided to take a breakfast here. We tried yesterday (Sunday) morning, but the queue was significant so we went elsewhere.
Today we got lucky and ordered a pot of coffee and a Classic Eggs Benedict and a Chili Jumble.
Food was served quickly and it was massive!
I don't know if I can eat all this Chili Jumble? How many eggs did they use for the omelette? I think at least 4! And the omelette is topped with cheese and contains chili and there is fried potatoes on the side and salsa and sour cream!
My wife enjoyed her Benedict, but hardly touched the potatoes (too much!) and gave me her griddled ham (more like gammon).
A massive breakfast which tasted good! Would certainly visit agin
P.S. No need for lunch today, this will see us through to our evening meal!
