I love the roasted turkey/avocado eggs benedict. It is always busy and sometimes a bit of a wait but they have coffee and water there for you. The staff is friendly, Though the food is delicious but it very often is not hot when it comes to the table. They do seasonal items based on local harvest/holidays. Kind of noisy atmosphere, hard to have a conversation. A little pricey but you leave stuffed. I like how you can adjust the portions.

The French toast is wonderful. The pancakes are huge and fluffy. The bacon has a hint of jalapeño to it. So many choices that are all very good!

My favorite meal is their California Crepe, sometimes I go there just because I am craving one. My friend prefers their whole wheat pancakes. The service is good, be prepared to wait to be seated at breakfast time.
