Excellent breakfast and lunch spot. Indoor and outdoor seating. Largest omelet menu you'll ever see. The crowd shows up early on Saturday. Extensive menu and beautiful deserts. Pleasant staff and large portions of whatever you order.

Good food! Wait staff friendly, helpful and worked together well! During Covid pandemic, safety measures being observed. Owner came by table to check on us. Cute decor, although a little dated. Check out the bakery options at front counter: a cinnamon roll so huge, it...could feed 4! The same with Rice Krispie square! Will definitely eat here again!More

We love having breakfast here. Service is prompt and efficient. Lots of great combinations to choose from and their pancakes are the best in town - fluffy and very tasty. They also have really good baklava in the dessert display counter. They are also open...for lunch and can be seated in their outdoor patio. They are usually very busy on weekends but this place is definitely worth the wait. They are located just off the I-15 fwy, Rancho California exit, very close to Old Town Temecula.More

People told us this is the best! We came and ate on patio. Ordered the giant cinnamon roll but it was mostly bread. Not enough cinnamon and good flavor. Dry. Ordered Chicken Fried steak with biscuits and gravey. Quality chicken Fried steak, real steak tenderized...and coated, not the formed and frozen style. Disappointed that the gravy had no sausage. Creamy flavor, but lacking in some spice. The biggest problem was dogs. Waiting outside to get in and eating on the patio, dogs barking constantly, lunging at each other, and people with big dogs let their dogs head at table height lick the other customer's food and plates as they passed. No control! If you eat here and don't have a dog, or don't want another person's dog to lick your plate, don't eat on the patio. Service was great and friendly. Other dishes looked good. This was our first visit.More

We have a large outdoor patio that is pet friendly. It is heated on cold days, and we have misters/fans for when it is warmer.
