    Bring your appetite and cash. The food is great, portions generous, and they don't take plastic.

    A hippie-diner version of Cheers. Love the scrambles, omelettes, homefries,, and meatloaf. And love when owner Judy the Beauty is on duty. Tres bien!

    When choosing, pancake over French toast, scrambled eggs over other styles and (fresh squeezed) orange juice over all other drinks.

    I recommend anyone who enjoys coffee, dessert and FIERCE entertainment, to catch a showing of The Coffee Shop Chronicles. The plays are original. The dialogue is witty. And the actors are spot on!

    Yummy! Real home fries, like my moms. Build your own omelette grande. Most casual venues opt out of serving fresh squeezed OJ, but not here. It's a great breakfast find!
