My favorite place to have breakfast in Eau Claire, I love the atmosphere and the food!


This place is unique and has wonderful food! Definitely a great place to go for breakfast!


This is probably the best quality food breakfast with very fresh ingredients I have tried so far. Highly recommend!


The great food does not make up for the HORRIBLE service. We didn't see our waitress for over 1.25 hours between taking our order and bringing food. She never stopped by to refill coffee or water (both were empty), yet she and other waitresses took care of the surrounding tables. We felt like there was an invisibility shield in front of us as we repeatedly failed to get anyone's attn! There is more to my visit than I can list here, but in summary: Fantastic food, but I will NEVER GO BACK.


Tasty, interesting breakfast and great coffee. Sorry to those who have caught a rough day, but you'll probably love it.
