“Sorry but no go”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 March 2012

Nice atmosphere, food didn't do a thing for me or my wife. We won't go back, just didn't like it.

“EXCELLENT FOOD AND GREAT PRICES”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 March 2012

The chirizo eggs benny on cornbread is awesome with home fries [like chunky hashbrowns]The warm herb bread they serve with butter before your meal [complimentary] is wonderful. Rodney the server has worked there a long time and is friendly and awesome! The pies look so tempting but after eating your meal you are too full! I just love this place! The prices are very reasonable.

“You've never had a better breakfast!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2012

I wish I knew what it was called but it's like they have sliced banana bread and cooked it like french toast and topped it with nuts, bananas, and their own milky maple syrup. Don't think about the calories just enjoy! Oh and everything else is good too :)

“Consistently great - must be the Windsor influence!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2012

Always great burgers and entrees, huge breakfasts, too...I often order the falafel as an vegetarian alternative.
John is a college-trained chef whose epicurean travels has exposed him to foods from throughout the world.
Been going for years...never a poor experience.

“brunch is soooo good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 March 2012

Wonderful quirky restaurant. Food is very good, worth the short wait if you can find room to stand. Portions are large, specialties are eggs Benedict several ways and waffles with maple cream cheese syrup, so good :-)
