Ate breakfast here on a Sunday after church service. The breakfast food (eggs, bacon, etc) were good. The service was good but they really need to use a water purifier, or change the filter, the water served was very moldy.

Good place to eat breakfast but sometimes can be a long wait to be seated. Nice omelettes and pancakes.
