    Possibly one of the worst coffees I've ever had. On the surface it looks promising but don't be fooled.

    Ask them not to cut up your burger... Otherwise they cut it into quarters which makes it impossible to eat.

    The service perfectly mixes the essences of the DMV and a firing squad — they're so horrible you'll believe you're on Punk'd. The food's pretty good, though. You'll leave satiated and furious.

    Corn beef hash is fantastic. If you get an extra egg (total of 3) it's easily a meal you can split with two.

    The bacon & egg croissant sandwich is great - but man, it's made with like a dozen eggs. You can get away with splitting this with a friend.
