    The hot brown was just ok. Didn't have any ham on it so it was missing some flavor.

    Don't go to this place. They have horrible service and I presume it is because I was the only black person dining in there.

    Long waits, a little expensive for breakfast... oh wait try the biscuits and gravy....Never Mind (to be spoken like Rosanne Rosanna Dana). Really is good, we are just spoiled and fun even for kids.

    It's a little pricey, but I can recommend it. Go for breakfast food, of any kind. If you're not in the mood for sweet (i.e. French toast), go for the farmhouse scramble!

    I went there today to do a food review for a frugal website that I blog on, but had to leave, as the food is very pricey; a Grilled Cheese, from the kids menu, sandwich-only was going to be $6.95.

    The chocolate lava cake is pure bliss. If you enjoy brownies that aren't quite done baking, hot from the oven, this is for you. Orgasmic! I always get the ice-cream on the side and give it to a friend
