Really great food. Love the carrot cake. Sat outside on the patio. We had our dogs leashed up beside us, which was very nice. All the stores were very pet friendly with water dishes and treats.

Always an amazing time when breakfast is spontaneous. Eggs Benedict is to die for, and you can have a few different varieties. Their home fries - omg I wish I could make them myself. Great food great time

I have gone a couple times now and seems to be our new go-to breakfast place. Friendly staff and great food. Seating inside or outside on their fenced off sidewalk patio.
