I go there for breakfast only. I haven't tried their lunch but my husband loves it. The food is terrific; however the wait is long. Is it worth it ? I believe so.

Locals favorite, consistently good. Typically expect wait to be seated during lunch hour. Parking at next door parking lot if main lot full. Tea is sweet so i order half sweet /half unsweet.
