Went for breakfast. Dani was our very kind server and she took excellent care. I had the indulgent Stuffed French Toast. My friend had the Hippie Hash (she says it's her favourite). Not only did I enjoy the delicious food, but the banter and atmosphere was nice. A friendly fun place for a meal. Loved it.-Brooke Clevenger via Google Review

My boyfriend took me here for breakfast on a Saturday morning and it was the best breakfast I’ve had in a very long time! Everything was homemade and the service was amazing to say the least. If I could I’d give more than 5 stars.-Alaina Brown via Google Review

This place was amazing! Honestly cannot believe how much fun we had. Atmosphere, service and food were all outstanding. Great place to get some breakfast/brunch/lunch. We luckily showed up during a lull and were able to eat at the counter. Definitely place a togo order if you can. They have six seats at the counter, four tables with four seats, and one table with 2 seats, for a total of 24 seats. We ate the breakfast tacos and the Mutha Cluckin Jones omelette. Everything was seriously fantastic. SO happy we found this place! It was a cool aspect of the experience to watch our food being made too.-Jessica Modrzynski via Google Review
