    Breakfast is amazing here and they do lunch and dinner well too. Go for patio seating during nice weather.

    If you want an intimate spot in this center-of-the-universe restaurant, choose one of the two little tables on either side of the dessert case.

    Great historic spot for any occasion. Try their Bloody Maria as hot as you can handle. Huevos Rancheros or Challa French Toast are my personal favorites.

    Coming from the Bay Area, I wouldn't consider this a $$ restaurant. I had the Gunpowder, an egg, potato, chorizo, peppers and cheese scramble, which was fine. Jellies and butter a la Sysco.

    If you're having the veg breakfast option, make sure to get the English muffin, as it's the only bread that's vegan.

    Love their breakfast. Great atmosphere. Near city bus station and Amtrak station. Plan on showing up early as there is usually a wait during peak times. Little more expensive than most, but worth it.

    If you can stand to wait for an actual server to, you know, serve you they have good food. Too bad, was really looking forward to their Tuna Nicoise salad.
