I passed this place SO many times, so we decided to take a friend to breakfast. Even on a Tuesday late morning, the place was packed. The ham and eggs, well, they sure don't SKIMP!!! 3 NICE pieces of ham!!! I got the burger patty & eggs with biscuit & gravy-a huge bowl of gravy! The chocolate chip banana Belgian waffle was awesome, covered in whipped cream. It was our server Stephanie's birthday, so the whole restaurant sang Happy Birthday to her!!!

If you haven't been here you need to Come and try the Coffee Cake best I've ever had. They serve it with a heaping ball of butter on top and you watch it melt. Also tried the Country Fried Steak n Eggs breakfast also amazing. Check in on Yelp to save time on waiting.

Their coffee cake is the only reason I go there! Honestly the best coffee cake around (so delicious)! We had a party of 7 and added ourselves to the waitlist via Yelp (smartest thing you can do) and showed up and had to a slight wait, but overall seated real quick for what was being quoted to walk in's. Our server was friendly and the chile verde omelette was really good. 2 of us split it and it was for sure plenty. Everyone else's food looked good and everyone had to go boxes so that's worth the price for sure. Anyways back to the most important part, the coffee cake! It can come with butter or without and they have a gluten free option. For a tray it's $32 which isn't a bad deal since everyone will devour it.

Fabulous, wonderful! Staff is spectacular. Wait can be lengthy so DO use the wait list feature on this site to sign in ahead.

My new hidden gem!! 1st timer here & it was absolutely bomb. I ordered the biscuit Benedict with hash browns smothered in gravy, my mom & sister had the country fried steak with the country potatoes and we still had leftovers to take home. Now about this coffee cake, talk about heaven on earth!! BEST DAMN COFFEE CAKE I EVER HAD!! Thank you to our server Jamie for the wonderful experience!! Wonderful environment and excellent staff. Definitely returning.

Delicious in every-way & great service too. Yes the coffee cake is outstanding and you need to buy a slice at least to try it for the table. Definitely use the Yelp app so you can be put on the waiting list so you don't have to sit there and wait 90 minutes which is typical on a Saturday or Sunday. Ordering a large coffee cake for Thanksgiving. A must try if you're in the Redlands area

Arrived here at 730am on a Saturday morning on the way to Vegas. Wait time for check in was around 10-15 minutes. Service overall was pretty quick after that. Would recommend the pumpkin pancake topped with loads of pecans, whipped cream and syrup. Was the right amount of sweet but probably too much to finish in one sitting. Another must try item on the menu is the avocado toast. Comes with hash browns on the side. All well worth the bucks. And did I mention unlimited refills on your coffee?

The worst. We are never able to get on the waiting list. And yes Alexa the manager we are on the APP. not your website. It's very rude when Alexa keeps stating that other customers are able to get on the waiting list. Is she calling me stupid/liar. Hello. Not very humble people to communicate with. We called 3 times with the same issues and all we were told was that.. theres nothing we can do for you because other customers are able to get on.

If you haven't been here before, please make it a point to stop by at least once in your life. Because... COFFEE CAKE! COFFEE CAKE! COFFEE CAKE! It really lives up to the hype. The cake itself is so moist, and not too sweet. The cake comes out warmed up, and they add a huge dollop of butter. When you take a bite of the cake with the melted butter... OMG. SO GOOD. 1 slice is enough to share. This place gets really packed. Please use yelp waitlist. Service has always been great. Portions are huge. The last time I went our server knew we were sharing plates, and had them split the food onto 2 plates without us even asking. Very thoughtful!

We seriously love this place! Customer service is on point and it's always packed to the max here. Plates of food are full and delicious. Coffee cake with melted better is a yes please. Their Chile verde omelet is so good. It is an absolute must visit. I recommend getting on the waitlist on Yelp before you head over.

An absolute favorite breakfast spot in Redlands among all the locals. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu and there are options or substitutions for nearly every dietary preference. The coffee cake is a must, so if you are feeling something light, I recommend that alone or coffee cake with "little breakfast." For a big breakfast or lunch, the avocado toast and the 3 tacos meals are really good! Get there early or get on the Yelp waitlist because there can be up to a 2 hour wait on weekend mornings. The atmosphere is busy but friendly and checks can be split even in very large groups!

The food here is always amazing along with the service. There are often long waits but the food is worth it. A good idea to check in on yelp and get on the waitlist ahead of time to get seated faster. The food portions are good and the coffee cake is simply amazing. I have brought friends and family here and they constantly want to come back.

Really good brunch place! The serving sizes were huge and the quality of the food was really good. You HAVE to try the coffee cake! Its probably the best coffee cake I've ever had, I wish I got an extra slice to go. I had the breakfast tacos with ham and after two tacos, I was stuffed. The tacos have potatoes in them, not on the side, so it made them a bit starch-y and filling but it was still yummy. Highly recommend checking this place out! The wait time can be quite hefty but yelp check-in helped a lot and it didn't take long for the food to be served.

A local perennial favorite breakfast spot in Redlands. If you have a sweet tooth do yourself a favor and try the coffee cake. Many people including myself think it's to die for. The only reason to shy away is if you were counting calories because I'm sure it has more than its share however it is delicious nonetheless! To be honest with you this place has a long wait to get in for a good reason. They have a lot of great food. I love the breakfast tacos I love the spicy chili Verde sauce that they serve with the chili Verde omelette. I love their pancakes. They serve them in several flavors and varieties. Do yourself a favor and exchange one of your side items for some fresh fruit. Here all of their fresh fruit is locally sourced and is really delicious. The service is always great here. I can't really think of any bad experiences that I've had. And I come here all the time. The location is great. The place gets really busy though so do yourself a favor and come early.
