Came for breakfast on Saturday around 8:30am. It wasn't very busy. It took 30 minutes to get coffee and 55 minutes to get food. People around us had to wait along time also and were ready to leave.

I didn't think we would find a better place than the English Muffin. This place is not better in quality, however it has a great view of the lake. Everyone was very friendly. Service was great and quick. Good job!
