Food Scene
They serve up comfort food with a fresh twist at this cozy breakfast and lunch spot. The Wake Me Up! waffle (shot of espresso, chocolate chips, and bacon folded into batter) is as perky as the congenial staff. We've found this place to be the least crowded breakfast spot (with the best food and service!) on weekend mornings.

This place has AMAZING burgers with lots of interesting and delicious toppings. They make a nice seared ahi tuna sandwich or salad as well. Fantastic fries (try the Blvd Fries!) and street corn. It's a casual setting where you order at the counter and sit inside or grab a seat on the sunny front patio.
