We're long-time, but not frequent patrons. The establishment was very busy, so services suffered. Drink refills were VERY SLOW.

The hash browns and the home made bread are amazing. I had the omelette and my friend had the corned beef hash. If you can brave the line it is awesome.

Fast. Hot and fresh. My Aunt lives in Vallejo and suggested this for breakfast. The food was hot and service was great. Had an egg sandwich with cheese and bacon and the home fries with green onions.

Good portions good greasy spoon breakfast. The crab omelette is excellent as well as their thick cut toast. The only downer is its small and always busy so expect a wait at times. It is worth it though.

Great breakfast and great prices in the bay area! I cant wait to go back. They omelets and potatoes are amazing. The toast is homemade bread all at budget prices. The service was outstanding. I highly recommend them.

Great breakfast very reasonable. We were a large party and breakfast was amazing. Their homemade bread is very good. The missing link, Washington omelettes French toast and strawberry waffles are delicious. So large if not that hungry you should split.

Great breakfast and lunch. House potatoes are the best. French toast fluffy and light. Go early during the week. The place is small so on the weekend there may be a 20/30 minute wait. Its worth it!
