Solid choice for breakfast or brunch in Peoria. We enjoyed the Greek Omelet, Scramble w/ links, and the multi-grain pancakes were superb! Reasonably priced and excellent service!

Fresh-squeezed juices, great waffles and eggs benedict. The shrimp and grits benedict was outstanding. The sausage gravy was great. The juice is literally fresh-squeezed. Wish I was hungrier and could have tried more, as they had a lot of options. The staff was friendly and...More

Our family ate breakfast here while visiting during the weekend. We each ordered a different breakfast/brunch dish and enjoyed each one very much. Somewhat of a home cooked meal flavor, the breakfast specialties all sound or were delicious. Fairly priced given the dishes and amount...More

This is a good place for breakfast. I decided to try lunch here. The turkey club was tasty but priced at $10. When I asked if it came with a side, such as chips, the waitress said it would be an additional $1.99. This is...More

Overall my meal was fine, but I only ordered whole wheat pancakes, which were good, but nothing spectacular. I think everyone at our table felt the same, good food, but no rave reviews. There are many interesting options on the menu, and I'd like to...More

Here is a restaurant that you want to save for special occasions so that it doesn't get ordinary for you. I ordered the Denver with cheese grits and potatoes. I reached for the salt and pepper as I usually do, then hesitated realizing that at...More

We were there just before noon on a Sunday. They were busy but we only waited 5 minutes or so for a table. I ordered "Peoria's Best Breakfast", eggs sausage or bacon, with hash browns and a 1/2 order of biscuits and gravy (one large...More

They have the best unique food here and I am watching my weight. I had an egg white grilled chicken omelet, light on cheese. It was great. Love the wheat bread.

Honestly, I would not go here with 14 people. If you will be there on a weekend it will be difficult to get seating. I would definitely call to see if they would take reservations and if they can handle a group that large... More
