The value is there -- most full breakfast platters are $8.95 and feature eggs, meat, very good house-made potatoes, and "bread" (I had two plate size blueberry pancakes). Mimosas, Bloody Mary's and screwdrivers are $3 and served in pint-sized glasses.

Dimly lit restaurant with bar. Great atmosphere. Open for all meals- we had breakfast and dinner. I've never had so many different options for potatoes. The breakfast selections were great and the prices reasonable. Exceptional service!

We visited the Come Back In for breakfast on Mother's Day. I really enjoyed it and am looking forward to going back. One caveat, I never actually went inside. We parked in the back of the building where there is a decent sized parking lot....More
