Typical breakfast fare but the wait staff was friendly and quick. I had scrambled eggs with bacon and potatoes which was good.

Many sweet and/or savory choices and generous servings with fruit as a side option. Good way to start your day.

Being an European traveler this experience is just EVERYTHING. For us just as you see on TV, very traditional US restaurant, amazing food, HUGE plates, relatively cheap, endless coffee, friendly staff, clean environment.
