Went through this place since the morning star was packed and had a huge line. Looked at the four star review. What is disappointed. Coffee was bad. Menu was clean and plates were nothing special. Could do better at Denny's. Wait staff was friendly.

Busy little restaurant. I love breakfast there, but you may have to wait for a table, especially in the summer. Good prices, excellent and friendly waitstaff.

My friends LOVE Stanz, but on a Sunday morning there is too much demand for this little place to handle. We waited a long time (45min), our food took a long time (30min) and then I felt like I was expected to quaff it down...More
