Took my wife here for lunch since we heard good reviews for other locations. They have a breakfast menu even for lunch. Wife ordered biscuits and gravy (biscuits burned on bottom)hash brows and 2 eggs easy over with yolks cooked solid. I had eggs scrambled with a waffle. Evidently the cook was from Mars, cause both egg orders were terrible.... More

Ate here couple of times for breakfast. Service fast, food hot, large portions, & lots of choices. Healthy meals. Free range eggs! Hidden in small strip mall. Grocery store, hotels within walking distance. Perfect location for large vehicles. Huge parking area. Stop before going to Busch Gardens.

Food is very fresh, emphasizing farm to fork. Waitstaff very friendly and always checking on you--my ice tea glass was never empty. Kind of funky but in a fun way. Overall, a very good choice for breakfast or lunch.

This is a wonderful and interesting place to eat. Loved all the different selections on the menu. I had the eggs benedict with spinach and some wonderful maple bacon. I tasted the lemon ricotta pancakes, they were very good. We had great service. I would definitely eat here again when I am in Tampa.

The menu is healthy and the food is good. We had a variety of omelettes, pancakes and frittatas. The kitchen however prepares the food and has it served in any order. The result is that not everyone gets served at the same time. When the last person was served the first one's food was either gone or was now cold.... More
