    Really good, great for brunch. On the weekends specially sunday it takes a while to get a table, so be whiling to wait. I had a veggie omelette and it was delicious.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    The Huevos Rancheros is so good I almost cried when I finished it. Exactly how its supposed to be. Service was great, thanks Austin.

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

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

    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.
