They have several unique dishes that offer a healthy form of great breakfast comfort food. #1 choice for breakfast.

Always love this spot especially the pancakes and Door County melt but seeing that they are providing vets a free meal on Veterans Day tells me that these owners TRULY appreciate those that have "worn the uniform" which makes me more motivated to sing the praises of this fine and honorable restaurant group.

Thanks to all of you veterans everyday but especially this coming Nov. 11th.

"Honor to the soldier and sailor everywhere, who bravely bears his country's cause. Honor, also, to the citizen who cares for his brother in the field and serves, as he best can, the same cause."

P.S. My hope and prayer is that more restaurants and businesses truly give back to the men and women who bravely serve and not merely by posting a yellow ribbon or offerring a token 10% discount on veterans day. They should get that everyday.

Food very average to poor. Tasteless oven baked breakfast potatoes with a few raw green onions cut up into them. Eggs over easy were well done. Had to stop at Starbucks afterwards for a decent cup of coffee. Expected better after reading other reviews. Service was excellent.

Hi, Mark,

I am so sorry that your experience with us was not up to our standards. I am so glad you took the time to write this review as we are always looking to improve.

When you stopped by a few weeks back, we had just started using our new, updated quality potatoes. I absolutely take responsibility in the fact that they were not up to our standards, as we have been playing with the cooking time and seasoning amounts or these new potatoes and have finally mastered it. As for our coffee, we just switched this past week to a wonderful Sunrise Roast that Egg Harbor paired with Intelligentsia Coffee to create this new blend, which is a brighter, less bitter flavor.

I am so glad you loved our service, and I really do hope you try us again based off of that so we can provide you an excellent overall experience.

Thanks again,
