We were taken to this restaurant by friends of ours. We had an omelet and the blueberry pancakes. The taste was great but the food, esp the omelet were not hot. I prefer my eggs HOT. The flavors and ingredients are natural and very tasty....More

I could eat here everyday and be happy, but I only get to eat here on occasion. My favorite dish is the Country Ham Benedict! Gosh, my mouth is watering now. The hollandaise sauce is homemade and they don't mind giving you a little extra....More
