The first weekend this restaurant opened up in 1999, the line wrapped around the block. This could have something to do with the small seating area, but the great dining experience more than makes up for the small space. The breakfast menu features a create-your-own-breakfast combo with your choice of the usual suspects, from eggs, hash browns and sourdough pancakes, to waffles, breakfast burritos, biscuits and gravy. The eggs Benedict is a local favorite and the homemade Hollandaise sauce is stellar.
