The place is cute as is their extensive menu. I took 3 friends there for a birthday lunch. They all had great sandwiches but I ordered a buffalo chicken wrap that I thought the chicken wasn't done. They redid my wrap but didn't tell me till they served the second one that the buffalo chicken was made out of dark meat. Had I known that, I would have ordered another selection. Are half of it but did not enjoy it. Also we were disappointed that there were only cookies offered for dessert since it was a triple birthday celebration, I was hoping for a nice desert. I think the breakfast- lunch menu was a better bet.

My husband and I came here for the first time today, and it’s our new favorite breakfast place! It looked really busy so we figured we’d pull in and try it, the wait was only about 20 minutes, you wait in your car and they text you. The menu is very well put together and everything sounded amazing. I started with the banana bread latte and it was one of the best lattes ever, it came with a cinnamon stick that added great flavor. For food I got the Heuvos Rancheros and it was better than any other I’ve ever had. I can’t wait to go back and try their whole menu. On top of amazing food, the service we incredibly friendly and fast.

Wasn’t happy with the “Darryl” sandwich. The chicken had no flavor and was somewhat burned! Other than that everything else was great. The loaded tots were amazing. Will be back to try more.
