While visiting family, we chose this local eatery for a Saturday breakfast. First, before being seated, you place and pay for your order. Interesting approach which worked well. After ordering, we were seated quickly by John who went out of his way to make sure our four year old grand daughter had her seat and crayons! The breakfast options were... More

From out of town; stopped in at 2:40 (close at 3) and had no problem ordering or eating. Staff was delightful. Food was fresh. Giant cinnamon rolls baked daily. Iced tea was good and coffee looked and smelled good. You can do a lot worse than this.

We went on a Saturday, early afternoon and waited a short 5 minutes for a table. The service was great, very friendly. I had the short stack of flappers which was two very large pancakes. I didn't care for the yeast as it gave the pancakes an overwhelming taste. Another order was flappers with the fruit and they came with... More

Uff da! Food was delicious and the coffee hot and plentiful. This was a luncheon meeting with a friend and at first, it looked impossible to get it. After a 10 minute wait we had a table and a wonderful two hour discussion. Love this place.

Be sure to ask about ingredients in the Flappers (pancakes). Very strange flavor; almost tasted fermented. They were not edible for our taste buds. The three other breakfast dishes ordered were very good (breakfast sandwiches and classic breakfast plate) Great coffee. Good Service We've been here twice now a Saturday about 1pm. Got a table right away. Oddly on both... More

A great spot for breakfast. We went on a snowy morning so it wasn't busy. A perfect place for a good meal and some coffee

We love this place especially for a late breakfast/early lunch on weekdays. Seems like we nearly always order the fritata - which is a huge amount of food. We love the bread that come with it and always ask for their amazing homemade jam. We almost always buy scones though we often end up taking them home to eat the... More

I know this isn't my husband's type of place so he may never come back but I may try it again if for nothing else than Nutella roll!!! Very good but a very yuppie crowd. No space to walk. Get in line... you order at the counter and your food is delivered to a table they choose for you. Try... More
