This neighborhood restaurant has good food and good service. The menu is fairly extensive, and prices are comparable to similar restaurants. Best to walk there, as there is no parking lot, and street parking can be hard to find.

This is a very friendly neighborhood place to have breakfast. Excellent eggs cooked just the way you want them and they make their own pico de gallo.

We've been here before and enjoyed the food. And service was fine, as always. But food just ok. I got an arugula salad that was 95% arugula, maybe 6 grape tomatoes, and perhaps 10 tiny balls of mozzarella (with some basil leaves and dressing)...way way...More

Not my favorite place but certainly no complaints! The food and service was good. I had a lovely vegetarian sandwich with a spinach Ceasar. My daughter had the grilled cheese and was happy with her choice as well.

If all you want is glorified hamburgers and nothing innovative, come here. A drag for anybody who wants to eat healthy or be challenged by creative food. Male waiter could have been more helpful.

We've had good luck with street parking around this restaurant; the parking meters are automated to take cash, debit or credit card and were easy to use.
