Stopped here for brunch and had the emergency room and corned beef hash and eggs. Both were great - corned beef hash was amazing! The portions are enormous so consider sharing plates if you're not starving. Service was perfect. Super friendly and warm.

I've had four dishes from here. None of them stand out but I'd return for them. The staff is a fun, sassy bunch but can be unnecessarily rude at times. The cash only option is annoying.

Had the French toast and bacon. Got the "3 slices" vs. "5" - good thing. HUGE! Kind of like an open-face baguette. Popular spot, all the food looked good and patrons looked quite happy!

What a European should expect for an American breakfast; just portions are VERY big and the coffee is a bit lowsy ;)

There seems to be a lot of on-street parking in the neighborhood. We did not have a problem on a Saturday.
