The food is very good and the portions are Huge. The atmosphere is typical diner, but the brick walls are cool. The cook can be loud and sounds angry sometimes, so if you don't want to hear that, you should sit in the other room.

The portions are huge and the food is great. We got so much we had to both take some home. I highly recommend this breakfast spot.

Cute place, bigger inside then it looks, two rooms. Owner too loud, barking at wait staff. Wait staff also yell out from register- not a nice breakfast aura! A little professionalism would do wonders to make me go back!
