Met a colleague for a late breakfast and was pleased to see an extensive menu for both lunch and breakfast. Decisions, decisions...went with breakfast-delicious. Friendly wait staff. Atmosphere is a little worn, but clean. Enjoy!

Blondies is the standard to measure others against. The servers have the right amount of "attitude" to keep their frantic pace fun. The food never disappoints in taste or quantity. Blondies is a great value and a load of fun. Don't miss it.
