Really love this place for breakfast. The California Benedict is delicious as the substitute Turkey for Canadian bacon. The Turkey is delicious. My wife loves the blinzes and really enjoys them.

We always enjoy a delicious breakfast at Aunt Emma's. Parking is limited. Usually a wait of 15 min but definitely worth waiting.
