    The first time here I ordered Bill's Steak and Eggs. A delicious tender and juicy tube of tri tip steak went well with scrambled eggs and hash browns with a pancake on the side. Decadent and delicious

    Steak and eggs are so good. Also ask for the eggs Benedict cordon bleu with croissant instead of English muffin. And if you haven't of course try their mimosa
