    For $10.50, you might expect a hearty, textured corned beed hash with flakes of slow-cooked meat ... But the pancakes are delicious!

    Country Fried Steak and Eggs, Add 1 Egg scrambled, English muffin, hash browns extra crispy. If extra hungry add andouille sausage patty, maybe the Carmel Pecan roll...ahhh

    Classic diner that's arguably best for breakfast/brunch. Minnesotan omelette and all benedicts are delicious. Oh, and portions are enormous!

    Get any kind of sauce on the side otherwise your food will be drowning in it. Tasty stuff! Although, the hash browns are always disappointing.

    There huge waffles are the best! I love the cookie dough waffle, but unfortunately the service isn't all that great so I rarely come here..

    If you come after bar rush two people are not allowed to occupy a 4 person booth, but are allowed to occupy a four person table because "you can fit more in a booth." That "logic" makes my brain hurt.

    The new manager, Juan, is awesome! He used to be a cook in the back for 7yrs, and was recently promoted to manager. Be nice to him because he's a cool guy.

    No charge when substituting fruit for hash browns. You receive a substantial portion of good fruits (not just a bunch of melon).
