We were having our car serviced at a car dealer close to The Egg and I so we decided to try if for breakfast. We were seated immediately on a weekday.

This chain is a great place for a very good breakfast at a reasonable price. MANY gluten free options for my family. Service is always quick and food hot and delicious. Anytime we visit we make it a point to stop here for at least one breakfast.

We have eaten at too many of these types of breakfast places to count. This rates with the best of them. Staff is friendly, food is good, service is quick and attentive, prices are fair and restaurant is clean and bright. Also, much better pancakes than the Original Pancake House.

Ordered a cup of Fruit, biscuit and gravy and 3 pieces of bacon. The wife ordered an omelette dish. Disappointed that they didn't have soup today. Total price was about $27. Service was good. Would recommend if in the area.

Great food, great service, great menu. Would return frequently if I lived in the area. Had Sunrise Chile rellenos - fabulous but not on their new menu.

I got the California Avocado Toast. And I love avocados, but I wasn't impressed with the lemon tang to it. It just wasn't what I expected. The service was great and timely especially going on mother's day.

Wow, I was beyond impressed. Our meals were excellent, our server timely, courteous, and helpful, and it actually surpassed my expectations. I live in a nearby tourist town, where quality (even if a restaurant is a chain) and consistency aren't always the norm, and I could tell this location met both of those.
