Was a wonderful place for breakfast. Loved their French Toast! Great atmosphere. Convenient to our hotel and they open at 7:30 for all the early birds.

True diner feel. Amazing coffee. Attentive service. Generous portions. Perfect breakfast fare. Don't be put off by the size -- quick turnover. Clearly a favorite of locals.
