First time visit. Glad we stopped. The basic breakfast plate was a nice portion and everything was very tasty. The egg, cheese and potato burrito was large and oh so good. Service was pleasant and attentive. Will definitely be going back on our next visit.

We ate here twice while visiting for the weekend. Both times we both had something different. All four meals were very good, quick to come out, and very hearty plates.
