We went about an hour before they closed. The staff was very friendly and didn't make us feel rushed. The food was delicious with generous portions. There were so many choices for dessert from cupcakes to cheesecake, it was hard to decide.

From vegans to carnivores, the menus at this neighborhood mainstay have something to please any taste. Huge selection for breakfast and lunch, six types of meatloaf, oh yeah and the cupcakes! (Including a variety of GF choices. ) We always enjoy coming here.
