    My fav dish to order is the chorizo and avocado omelette. The red velvet pancakes are also a great choice.

    White chocolate pretzel pancakes are a site to behold! Also stay away from the tomatillo chicken scramble, it's very bland with barely any egg.

    Great breakfast place with tasty pancakes. Come at least 15 minutes before opening for a Saturday brunch, otherwise you'll have to wait for a table.

    Tried the healthiest breakfast option (scrambled egg white with chicken, avocado and spinach). Sounded good, but tasted bland

    Try the chocolate french toast and Lobster Eggs Benedict together. Both are amazing. They'll be happy to split a dish if you're not capable of a colossal caloric challenge.

    The cannoli pancakes are the best kept secret on the menu. The pistachio-chocolate sauce they drizzle on top makes the dish.
