The breakfast menu has items on it to satisfy both the vegetarian and the meat lover. They even offer greens as a breakfast side. Loved the bread and homemade jelly! Huge portions. We will come back!

A table for two on the front porch, friendly service, chai latte and California Eggs Benedict made for the most perfect experience. A varied menu with many surprises beyond the standards started brunch off on the right track. And looking around to our fellow brunchers,...More

They accommodate gluten free diets nicely. Re- comment on the wait. It is a very popular restaurant. Getting there early makes it easy. I never go after 9am.
