Visited with my daughter this afternoon. Very friendly staff, good service, very generous portions (neither of us could finish even half of what we ordered!), and very clean.

My wife and I went here for an early morning breakfast. All was good at this nice neighborhood cafe. Service was very friendly and helpful. The Fajita Skillet and egg omelette were tasty as were the French Toast. Good place to have handy for breakfast.

Nice local eatery, especially for breakfast. I've a city apartment down the street and see a lot of returning customers here. Healthy food options at a fair price. Warm and prompt service. Often has a que, but the line moves quickly -- worth the wait.
