    The food was pretty good but the service was terrible. Waited for an hr when there were clearly tables open. Our waitress was absentminded as well. Biscuits and gravy were good.

    Huevos Rancheros is awesome! I highly recommend getting a side of hash-browns with it. Lastly, grab a cupcake to go or for dessert!

    Amazing hash brown. Great coffee, reportedly fantastic breakfast sandwich. Fantastic hand pies. Ridiculous lines/wait time - but it's popular for a reason.

    The biscuits and gravy are a unique take on the dish and the flavor is amazing. I can't speak to the rest of the food, never tried any! The atmosphere is outstanding.

    Bacon-studded twinkies? Sold. As for your real breakfast, hash plus a perfectly cooked poached egg and may just be your ticket. Read more

    Have heard a lot of wonderful things about this restaurant, but I was a bit disappointed. The avocado and croutons on my garden salad were the only fresh items; everything else looked and tasted old.

    Look out for breakfast dishes like huevos rancheros benedict or sandwiches like the Easter dinner sandwich (scalloped potatoes, smoked ham, and Dijon mustard on ciabatta). [Eater 38 Member] Read more

    Very popular place. Be prepared to wait. But worth the wait. The breakfasts were very good and had to pick up some of the baked goods for home. Love that they have the Lowertown twin-key!

    Go for outside seating; it's in the shade! Bananas Foster French Toast is "like a banana split without the chocolate." Chicken club is yummy too.
