    Linguica omlet is awesome. Portugal sausage has a nice and salty flavor. You can order it with toast. Pancakes a little bit tasty for it.

    Solid breakfast spot, but the wait is ridiculous on the weekend. Pancakes are moist and fluffy - blueberries are the best.

    I love their strawberry milkshakes, but honestly sad to say I don't plan on going back anymore. Service sucked and just overall experience gets worse each time I go back. I use to love this place too

    Bring Febreze, the ventilation system lacks the capacity to remove the greasy smell. Food is delish!

    The veggie scramble was disappointing. It was swimming in oily veggie juices, and the half of avocado that topped it wasn't even sliced. I had to send it back.

    Pancakes are good but the link sausage is full of fillers, bland, and a waste of calories. Service is irritatingly slow; prepare to be ignored for a while.

    Don't try it. Old decor and heavy menu. The wait staff is very friendly, attentive and caring.Need to update the decorum. Menu needs healthier choices. We won't be back here.

    Veggie omelette comes with half an avocado, hash browns, and two pancakes. Opt for Swedish pancakes with lingonberry butter, no syrup needed. Yum.
