Bacon, egg, and cheese sandwiches for three people, two coffees and an orange juice = nearly $50 for breakfast. Are you kidding me?? Our bacon was raw and my son almost spit out the orange juice. The coffee wasn’t any good either. This place was...More

Take a trip down memory lane at this breakfast spot. They have fantastic food with standard and healthy options. They have decorated with old time games and movies throughout. It is small so you may have a wait but it is well worth it.
