This restaurant is loud, crowded and difficult to get a seat at breakfast and lunch. Yet, I find myself still drawn to it. The sandwiches are so delicious and the sticky buns are wonderful. Everything is so good- so go at an off time. 1:45...More

This is a very busy and fast moving breakfast cafe, where one orders at the counter. We found the choices for breakfast suited us v well. Bear in mind that on weekends it doesn't open until 8am.

As a carb addict this is my church - a busy, lively home to freshly-prepared breakfasty, bready awesomeness. I went twice and could have basically eaten every meal there had I been allowed! You don't want to be in a hurry though, it gets super-crowded.
