Surprisingly good food. Unique and tasty. We are from the west coast, and would love to see this chain on our coast.

This is a great spot for a quick or long breakfast near the Dayton Mall. I would recommend sitting in a corner booth when you walk in on the left. Very good spot. I like their protein breakfast options as well!
