We called to order take out breakfast on a busy Saturday morning. Food was hot and ready in 10 minutes, and experience was very smooth and easy. Manager/cashier gentleman added check in his head--haven't seen that for a while!

My Dad and brother go every Sunday morning for breakfast and I often join them but today I went for lunch with my son. Both of our meals were nicely cooked and good sized portions - I am saving half for lunch tomorrow!
