The waitress was friendly and quick. The food on the other hand was not so great. I ordered a Spanish omelette and I got an omelette with cheese and jalapenos with some salsa on the side. It came with home fries, but they were cold.

POTENTIAL SALMONELLA?!?! NEVER AGAIN! Visiting from out of town, this place was near our hotel. They served my very young daughter chicken fingers that were so raw inside she thought the pink was that they had somehow cooked tomatoes with chicken. Manager seemed sorry, but geez - glad I get to stress over a child with potential serious food poisoning... More

Stopped by based on reviews for lunch. Probably should have ordered breakfast since that looks to be the most popular. Anyway, ordered iced tea and received in a dirty glass. Ok, no biggie, got a new one. Wanted to order chicken lunch special but, they were out. So, I ordered the gyro sandwich. Unfortunately, fries and gyro were super salty.... More

I love this place. Atmosphere, great staff and good food. Whenever I'm in Alexandria on a Sunday I make sure I get here for brunch. It is great. I am always happy with my meal.

Some of the locals told us it was the best breakfast in town. It was our only breakfast but wouldn't dispute it. They had a full menu along with a full buffet with made to order omelets and waffles. They didn't hold back like many buffets and they moderately priced and pretty darn yummy! Best Breakfast in town? I'm good... More

I had high expectations for this restaurant and was slightly let down. I went for breakfast and wasn't too impressed with the food. I had a Belgium Waffle and tea for breakfast. The tea was great, but my waffle was cold. It was so cold, it didn't melt the room temperature butter I put on it. On a positive note,... More

My husband and I had lunch there. We had veal parmigiana $14 and shrimp alfredo $14 with the salad bar included. We also had a coupon from a visitor guide. Pasta tasty, abundant quantity and awesome salad bar (very Mediterranean--with olives, artichoke hearts and dolmades). Recommended.

The interior is very tired and needs some TLC. I ordered the Chicken Fried Chicken which came with very nicely cooked fresh green beans and a large portion of mashed potatoes with the skins. The chicken was crispy and moist. Really a huge portion. I couldn't finish it. Same with the beans and the potatoes.

Their weekend buffet is as amazing as ever. They have it all and from the moment Nick greets you at the door you will be happy with your experience. There is a traditional breakfast buffet, but that is only the start. There is an egg and waffle station too. Want an omelet, scrambled eggs, over easy? just tell them and... More
