This restaurant has a great location. We walked from our hotel for a late breakfast. Food was good. We had omelets. They have a few low-carb, gluten-free, and vegetarian. Our service was average.

The food at this St. Paul restaurant was the best we had on our tour of Minneapolis/St. Paul. I had the Amish Chicken, which was cooked to perfection. The grilled viggies were good, too. My husband chose the Sirloin w/peppercorns. It was even better than...More
