Stopped for a quick lunch with my 6 year old. The pancakes were enormous and the veggie omelette was fresh. I recommend the pumpernickel swirl bread! It's like a fresh roll rather than toast. Delicious bite out.

The grilled chicken breast salad with the house balsamic dressing was excellent. The ice tea is very good. The staff was very friendly and fun. The kitchen was efficient. Great value for the money. Looking forward to more lunches here.
