This is a favorite spot for locals. Ample portions, friendly service, and unpretentious food. No truffle oil in sight.

The corned beef hash breakfast is amazingly delicious. I get them with eggs over medium and sourdough toast... what a complete meal. The corned beef hash just melts in your mouth. Everything on the plate compliments each other well and they cook it all perfectly.

I ate outside, which was nice. I had the chille verde huevos. Which is pork sausage chille verde, eggs and cheese on corn tortillas. It also comes with home fries and refried beans. The biscuits are amazing!! And their homemade strawberry jam was perfect.

Not only does this restaurant open very early, the service has always been great. I usually eat breakfast here and I have never had a bad experience. Staff is always cheerful and helpful.

We found this place and picked it thanks to some reviews. It isn't a huge place, so we did have to wait awhile to be seated. Once we got our food, we understood what the wait was for! We really enjoyed this place.

I'm not sure, looks like first come first served. I'd call and check--especially for a larger group they would probably take a reservation. Very customer service oriented.
