My husband and I had breakfast around 11 on a weekday. Big portions. His eggs were done perfectly. My omelette was delicious. Loved that a large cup of fruit was an option as a side at no additional cost. Awesome service. Fast.

Seated fairly quickly. The food portions were nice (maybe too big) but very good. My seafood omelet did not skimp on the seafood. Staff was nice enough.

Well you have to park along Woodard Ave in a parking lot. Take the new Q Line and get off at Grand Circus Park.
