    The Friggin' Amazing French Toast - croissant slices coated with cinnamon vanilla batter & cooked to a golden brown, served with maple syrup, pecans, and homemade raspberry butter. Wow..

    The Cheddar "CRACK" #Bacon Burger. Cheddar cheese, bacon, BBQ sauce, roasted onions & fresh tomatoes on a toasted potato bun. You will go into a food coma after eating this.

    The atmosphere is great. If you like having delicious sun blasting your dome while you eat the most delicious bacon ever, I'd definitely recommend the patio for seating. Split a pancake - ya welcome

    The beef poutine is a newer menu item. Although listed as an appetizer it's substantial for eaters who don't need a heaping portion. Warning: parking is a trial. Great lunch spot!

    The after school special is off the hook. This place is the best. Big portions and friendly staff. Favorite after workout spot on weekends.

    I've been all over - New York, Paris, London, Barcelona - and this is the best breakfast place I've ever been to. Get the truffle scramble and a side of crack bacon.

    The French toast croissant is life changing and the crack bacon is worth it. But more than anything go for the beautiful cozy atmosphere

    The croissant French toast is absolutely delightful. The crack bacon however has a disappointing after taste. Some of the servers are a bit snobbish but there are some gems.

    The breakfast items are decadent! I love how they give you a bowl of mixed cereal as a breakfast "amuse bouche"

    Basically eat everything and enjoy yourself. Lemon Basil champagne cocktail is a must. As well as the "crack" quesadilla. Trust.

    Best tuna melt ever. Side potatoes for breakfast dishes are kinda spicy, so ask for something else if you're sensitive to spiciness. Homemade ginger ale is not very good, get something else.

    Somehow managed to pay $20 for JUST a grilled cheese sandwich and tomato soup. No drinks. Other than that. Great food. Nice vibe. Friendly staff.

    Dear Grub: thank you for having the best iced coffee in this part of town, allowing me to keep my job, allowing me to make enough money to support my crippling addiction to black tar heroin.

    Large portions and fresh ingredients. Side salad is lackluster and the cookie sandwich dessert hardly meets expectations. It was as hard as a brick when it was served.

    I must admit, I wasn't a fan. I had high hopes. Sat on the patio only to be attacked by flys! Ordered the buffalo chicken and received a rock hard/over cooked piece of chicken. Cute atmosphere though.
