    Wait is usually long but worth it. Original Skillet is excellent and sourdough toast is very good. Very popular place so get there early and still be prepared to wait!

    The veggie skillet is delicious AND loaded with nutrients so you'll feel better about pairing it with a mimosa. Which, by the way, is a great source of vitamin C :)

    The Jalisco scramble: eggs, carnitas, onions, black beans, cilantro, and fresh salsa. Top with the pepper sauce, scoop into a corn tortilla, and have an orgasm in your mouth.

    Great local diner with another location in Willow Glen. Best eggs Benedict (and variations of it) in the Bay Area.

    I recommend Bread pudding french toast, crab cake egg Benedict and omelet. The food was so big and not salted. Very nice~

    Crab cakes eggs Benedict is delicious. The pancakes are PLATE sized. If you need more than a short stack, you're a pig.

    Okay, come here quite often on the week days. This Sunday it was super pact as usual. A couple gave us their seats at the bar. Told we needed to move because someone else wanted to sit there. What!?!

    You can call in & leave your name on the wait list, but I'm not sure if it helps though. We still have to wait a bit.
