We stopped in here for breakfast after dropping a car off for service. The food was outstanding and the service was friendly and efficient. If you get the chance you have to order the maple and cinnamon waffle with sausage. The waffle tastes wonderful and the maple cinnamon sauce on top takes it to another level with rich cinnamony goodness.

We were a group of eight people, so it took a while to be seated. The place remained very busy the whole time we were there.The service was efficient and very friendly.

They do a really nice job. The lines are LONG, and subsequently, the service is slow. That said, the food is quite good. I'm not sure if pick it over a slightly less crowded place in a similar vein, though...

Had the gluten free apple/pecan french toast, very good. Eggs, hash browns all well received by my party. Lot of creative breakfast options including plenty of gluten free choices.

I think $20 for breakfast for one is too much. My mistake was ordering orange juice with my coffee and discovering I was charged almost $5 for the juice. Scrambled eggs and a side of potatoes however should not be $15. Food was good, staff prompt & courteous but not nearly enough food for the price.

Thank dluri
