We were there around 9am, with very few other people in the restaurant. The hostess was quite rude when we accidentally spilled some coffee. Eye rolling and being disrespectful is not necessary. It was an accident. The waitstaff was good. The hollandaise sauce on the eggs benny was separated and looked gloppy. Not appealing at all. I asked for medium... More

Great spot for Breakfast or any other meal. Get there early and you get the local paper for free. It is nice little feature. Meals are good and they have good specials. If you look for the specials you can get good deals. Lots of local shopping. Home Depot is right next door and Cosco is just down the road.... More

I rarely eat breakfast, but find when I'm travelling, it's a must. This is my favorite place for breakfast. I love their 3 cheeze omelet with an order of bacon and oj.

Good place for breakfast or lunch. Not fancy. Affordable prices. Decent menu. Good service. Plenty of free parking. Nothing special but an OK spot to obtain a quick feed bag!

I went with my family , wife and daughter . The service was horrible it took more than 30 minutes for our food to arrive . We had to call all the time for coffee to be served and the prices were extremely overpriced . Small portions. Bad experience.

Had the Denver omelette, got mushroom instead of onion and it was super good. Thought it came with hash browns so I got fruit as my side, but you only get one side, be aware LOL. Friend had the 3 strawberry pancakes, big order, fluffy, whip cream, super good but no side unless you add one. Overall, good meal but... More
