As you can see by the first picture - this place is all about the pancakes....the choices are incredible! We normally have eggs and order the pancakes to go. Although there are no pictures - (I'll add some from my next visit) the pancakes are the SIZE of the plate - ONE is more than enough. The only down side is price - they are on the high end for breakfast.

Considering the portions, it is like getting two meals in one. This visit we decided on an egg white omelette over flowing with any filling(s) you like and a breakfast burrito. BOTH huge hits with the kids.

It's a place to visit over and over and over and over again. A nice way start to any day! Carb lovers unite!

Happy Travels.

I was hoping to find a "fast food" type restaurant that served take out salads and sandwiches which are made with good, fresh, organic ingredients. They also have "Paleo" food which intrigued me and made me think it would be healthy type food. When I called they said that the salad ingredients are organic, but when I got the spinach, it did not look fresh even if it was organic. My husband got a rare hamburger that was well done. Although the bacon looked rare, in fact it was cold and barely cooked sogggie bacon. This same barely cooked bacon was on the spianc salad so we threw it out because it looked so bad. The French fries looked homemade but the oil must have been old because the shoe string potatoes tasted off. The cole slaw was very sweet. We tried it once before and did not like the corn beef sandwich. We wont go there again.

Delicious food. Friendly service. Creative, fun menu of breakfast/lunch food. Unassuming from the outside, but there's a bounty of good eating within.

Do you like variety? Very good food, very well prepared in a small, neat and clean space? This is a spot to try. My neighbor and I went there and will definitely go back for the eats, good service and fair prices.
