Breakfast was delicious. Great variety - I had an omelette and there was the option for chocolate chip pancakes for my children. Everything we ate was delicious and filling. Healthy options for sure! I highly recommend!!

This is a great place for breakfast. There are 2 other breakfast places in the vicinity. I was torn where to go. The staff here greeted me the minute I walked in the door, they got my business. Friendly staff, tasty food.
