Great food, wonderful service. OMG, try the waffle with the ice cream and fruit and chocolate. It's AMAZING. Great scrambles and omelets, fantastic potatoes. Service is always so perfect. It's a must! Never mind the line outside, that just means is GREAT!

Even on a weekday morning we had a 20 minute wait. The food is the reason why! Very well executed breakfast dishes including fresh corned beef and a chorizo & eggs combo. Great service and very comfortable. Easy to see why it is so popular!

I'm not sure, looks like first come first served. I'd call and check--especially for a larger group they would probably take a reservation. Very customer service oriented.
