    Not only an excellent brunch place, but also a damn fast one. This place has its operations down cold--a beautiful thing on a weary, rushed weekend morning. Love the Greek skillet in particular.

    The namesake French toast is delicious!

    Green omelette (artichokes, avocado, spinach) and a side of whole grain pancakes (they offer variety of whole grains to choose from). Wait time up to 30 minutes. No alcohol and no split checks.

    Awesome menu - tons of great options. Bigger than average kids menu

    Serves an always changing menu with creative variations on breakfast and brunch dishes such as French toast and eggs benedict. I've never been disappointed eating here.

    Mayan Omelette is fantastic. It's so good I can't resist getting it every time. If you like chorizo, beans and plantains this is must.

    The food is always great and the service is even better - especially with Margie

    For the best hangover breakfast you must get the Papi Chullo

    Every time I visit I try something new. I have never been disappointed.

    Megan Finnerty · August 18, 2013
  • Mariel C.

    Disappointed. Based on the pics, I thought it would be amazing. Eggs were borderline raw and drenched in oil. Potatoes were overdone, dry, and flavorless. Won't be going back.

    If its on special - get the lobster omelette. Out of this world.

    Eric Dirksen · July 5, 2013

    Try the enchiladas.

    Great food!!! The Mayan Omletta is amazing. Even 2 year olds loved it. So filling. Such an inconvenience that you can't split the bill so be prepared ahead of time and it works out!! :)

    The harvest omelette was full of flavor! It was possibly the tastiest I've ever had.

    Take advantage of their specials, they are always great! I try a different dish everytime I come and am always delighted with the food and the service!

    For those who enjoy a quality brunch and can do basic math(no split checks). This is the place for you!!!

    Great menu! Fav new brunch spot!

    Charleen Borja · June 30, 2012

    You ca substitute potatoes for a selection of fresh seasonal fruit (mango, strawberry, papaya, etc) for only a dollar.

    Russell Knight · June 10, 2012
  • Laura J.

    Order a side of fruit. Loads of variety. Delish!

    Laura Johnston · June 3, 2012
  • LifeofJdan

    Don't be hypnotized by the Eggs Florentine Benedict - crabcake is oversized, dry and all corn/potato filler. Stick with the huevos or breakfast quesadilla

    LifeofJdan · May 6, 2012
  • Evan D.

    The food is very flavorful, if you have a group just bring cash. Splitting checks is kind of douchy, and slows down service.

    Evan Damiano · May 4, 2012
  • Michael V.

    Pancho Villa skillet is good, Breakfast Quesadillas okay; but both VERY greasy from the almost swimming in grease.

    I'm not against eating animal products, but the vegan chilaquiles were fab

    Small place. Not group friendly, rude service.

    Nëlson Sarm · February 12, 2012
  • Matt R.

    Slow service from the waitress. The omelet was ok. The potatoes were not. Wrong toast. The syrupy marmalade was some kind of gross apricot spread.

    Matt Robinson · January 29, 2012
  • Kirsten K.

    The bonapart is amazing! Well, everything is amazing!

    Kirsten Kolar · December 31, 2011

    Not the ideal group brunch spot. No split checks and no split cards. Sad day.

    Katie Nierzwicki · October 30, 2011
  • Jasmine D.

    Try the Bonaparte

    Jasmine Davila · October 1, 2011

    Great food, hefty portions, but no gluten-free alternative to toast.

    Matt Monroe · August 31, 2011
  • Katie F.

    Hello vegan chilaquiles! Delicious!

    Katie Faris · August 14, 2011

    Had a great omelette. And my friend had Pear French Toast which she said was amazing.

    Melissa Dundov · August 7, 2011
  • Elizabeth T.

    Not your normal diner fare, and if you're a sweet breakfast lover, you'll be in heaven.

    Elizabeth Towle · August 6, 2011
  • Andy M.

    Bright, nicely decorated space. Attentive staff. Must try: French toast and neo classico omeletta.
