Very good breakfast choices, tasty food, great servers, very patient with kids. Service was a little slow, and food was a bit expensive.

Thank you. We love families with children and have special menus for them. Depending on the time of the morning on a weekend we can get pretty busy but for the most part we get the food out fast and fresh.

Had a family luncheon here last week. Server was very sweet and friendly. Good Food (not great) and a little overpriced for our area.
