This is a cozy, friendly place to eat, prices are great and the service was wonderful! It décor is full of bears and is so comfortable. Although in Arizona, my son said he felt like he was in the mountains or "up north".

Very good service and food. Had the pancakes (sweet cream and HUGE), scrambled eggs (done perfectly), and bacon crispy (it actually WAS)! Need to go back for lunch or dinner.

Ham and cheese omelet with one pancake just right. One poached egg with bacon,tomatoes and English muffin, perfect. We'll be back. (Still the best Cubano sandwich... More
