As of now, we are planning on being open tmrw. We will open at 8 am instead of 7 am so our staff can drive slowly and safely! If anything changes, we will post it ASAP!

Since everyone's been asking... Carla will return to work on January 2. She will be working Tuesdays, Fridays, and Sundays. 😁

We are thankful for all of our wonderful customers and staff. Hope everyone has a safe, delicious Thanksgiving!

Good basic breakfast. I enjoyed my omelet. I would definitely recommend the cinnamon roll. It was served warm and was soft. The decor felt like you were going to visit grandmas house for breakfast. I loved the atmosphere.

Their Belgium waffles are the closest to the actual ones from Europe that I have ever found in the States. I flew into GR and needed a place close by. The building is cute in a quaint neighborhood across from a little park that was great for walking off the food. I originally went and got breakfast. Then went back, before I flew out for lunch (was hoping they had breakfast available all day so I could get the waffles again, but they do not). I had the vegetarian wrap and it is a lot of food for the price! My dad got a burger and my mom got the triple Susan. Both enjoyed them and also said it was a lot of food for the price. Only marked the atmosphere down one because they seem to be in the middle of updating. It will look great when the updating is complete. I highly recommend it!

Great food, great service and a cozy atmosphere. We went up here very early on a Saturday morning after dropping someone off at the airport and had a fantastic experience with a very friendly staff and delicious food with huge portions! Would definitely go back next time I’m up that way around breakfast time
