After a short wait we were served by a friendly staff. I had diced ham with scrambled eggs-very good. Hubby had biscuits & gravy, he likes mine better. It is a great local coffee shop, you will not be disappointed.

This place has consistently good food and service. They will customize an omelette for you and the fruit option (instead of hasbrowns) is always fresh and ripe.

Our party of 7, with 3 kids came in on a Wednesday morning for breakfast. Everything was delicious, cooked to order and well-portioned. We will definitely stop here again when in Idyllwild.
