This place is very good and delicious. My family and I went here for the first time last year and I have to say the staff is so friendly and the food is amazing. The eggs Florentine is very good and so are the pancakes. We love the egg & I.

Very pricey for what you get and they don't accept cards it's cash only...so you wait in line only to find out it;s cash only but guess what...they have an ATM on site and you get to pay the Service Fee from your bank!

We only ate breakfast at this restaurant. Everything we had was excellent. We had blueberry pancakes, yogurt with fruit, eggs, sausage links, coffee and orange. All good choices.Service was excellent. It is owned by a family and they are very friendly.

Not bad breakfast, but nothing to write home about. They don't take cards, so be sure to bring cash.
