Definitely a must. We go here every weekend. The new owners have really turned this restaurant around. Everything is completely new in the last year. The new owner, whose was one of the previous waitresses has been coming out with great new dishes. She doesn’t skimp on the quality of the ingredients either.

She actually has a chef instead of just a cook and it’s really showing. You get eggs perfectly cooked and not burned. I tried the new cinnamon pancakes today. OMG. Check out this salad. Presentation is now a key factor as well.

The staff is all wonderful. They are your friends.

Daring to be different is what sets this apart from just another diner.

Reasonable enough to go every day for breakfast or lunch.

What a quaint gem to find for a breakfast. Small, cozy with indoor and outdoor seating which is very limited for both but not long waits. The breakfast and coffee were superb. Breakfast for two about 30.00 but I believe normal for a tourist area. The staff was top notch, so friendly and accommodating for anything you may need if possible.
