Had breakfast this morning, seated right away but this place gets busy. They are offering seasonal flavors of pancakes and we had the pumpkin pancake today. Plate size so only get 1, light & fluffy and fantastic flavor. Also had the avocado, mushroom, cheese omelette which I added bacon. Generous portion so now I have breakfast for tomorrow as well....

I'm giving 5 stars. The food was clean and was tasty! My Wife took the sautéed spinach instead of the hash browns and was not disappointed.
