    Seating at the counter is first come, first serve. Usually no wait and the service is faster :)

    Sit at the counter. It's first come, first served. If you have a small party, it's way faster than waiting for the table.

    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
