    Food is great. The only thing that pissed me off about this place is the hostess! Such a rude person! I don't care if you've been working for 1 hour or 12 respect the customers. NEVER COMING BACK!!!!!

    For a good time, ask for the "Torey Baker Special," aka the chicken fried steak with gravy and a Belgian waffle.

    Breakfast? Come early, there's always a line but the wait is worth it. They have the best Benedict around San Jose(had crab cake Benedict) and I like their skillet too.

    Try the Parisienne French Toast - Really great, not too sweet like the bread pudding one, but was a little heavy but might have been the butter i added

    Catherine Wang · July 4, 2013
  • Brian F.

    Oat pancakes, nice! And sitting on the patio is definitely recommended.

    Brian Feinberg · May 1, 2013
  • Blake G.

    Go to BevMo across the street and buy a magnum of champagne before sitting down and make your own mimosas.

    Blake Guerrero · March 25, 2013
  • Blake G.

    Corkage fee is only $15 for champagne/wine. BYOB!!!

  • Tracy O.

    No real maple syrup, only the less tasty corn syrup kind. Bring your own!

    Fantastic: Bread Pudding French Toast -- baked w raisins & walnuts then grilled, topped w fried bananas and served w bacon & eggs. Jet lag can be a good thing: found this place on my way to work!

    Greg V · December 18, 2012
  • Alex F.

    If you like your Bloody Mary spicy, ask for *extra* spicy. Just spicy is a bit gentle.

    Alex Falls · September 29, 2012
  • Cheryl P.

    Grab some free watered down coffee outside while you're waiting to be seated.

    Cheryl Pascual · September 3, 2012
  • Gordon G.

    Closes at 3pm (at least during the week.)

    Gordon Garb · August 10, 2012

    This is by far one of the best breakfast/brunch spots in the Bay Area. You have to try it!!! :)

    Jennifer Knowlton · February 20, 2012

    The crab cakes Benedict and cinnamon roll French toast are amazing!

    Kendall Boyle · January 4, 2012
  • Peter A.

    On Sunday mornings, it's best to grab a seat at the bar and skip the wait for a table.

    Peter Allen · November 20, 2011
  • Arno H.

    Bloody Mary is really famous here

    Daniel park · June 10, 2011
  • Alex B.

    Breathe deeply, find a happy place (a la the lye burn in Fight Club), and wait a LONG LONG time to be seated

    Alex B · May 30, 2011

    on weekends, call beforehand to get your name added to the waiting list

    Plan to come early – especially if you have a large group. It can get crazy busy here, so timing is everything.
