The food was okay but not our favorite place. The service was quick when we went. They have a apple & strawberry jelly that are good! This place gets very packed though so get there early!

After reading all the great reviews, I guess I just expected more. The French Toast was very thin, the bacon was very dry (like it'd been sitting under a heat lamp for a long time), service was less than great. Not totally rude, but certainly...More
