We have been going to Sidney for many years and finally tried this restaurant. It will now be our favorite breakfast place. Food is excellent, portions are huge. Can't wait to try the lunch.

Visited the restaurant twice during our stay in Sidney. The staff were very polite, very efficient and our breakfasts were lovely, although we had a short wait for a table. Overall a very pleasant experience. I would recommend this establishment.

I had the Betty White Benny. The eggs were cooked to perfection and the taste was good. However , I couldn’t quite explain the odd selection of flavours my palate endured during the tasting. It seemed like it wasn’t working. Spinach, garlic, bacon, carmelized onions....More
