  • I started going there for a good basic breakfast (pancakes/eggs etc) last year and it was good so I kept going back just about every weekend. I'm really going to miss the waitresses who were so nice and knew what I wanted to order when I came in. No one said anything about closing when I came in last Saturday :( I was told earlier though that they didn't the patio permit that year so that was why there was no patio dining.

  • It has been a while for me but I use to love their breakfast and the soup was delicious! It was a welcoming place for LGBT people. I started going in 1980 when I moved here and it is just sad to see it closed.

    Here we are at August 1st and the Broadway Construction Nightmare continues unabated. It doesn't look like Tom Tunney has any power whatsoever to get this never ending mess completed. his Office has been contacted many times by many people and nothing changes. Something is clearly wrong. Today just like back in April there are clouds of dust wafting over the street with just a handful of Construction workers visible between Irving and Belmont on on any given day, and frankly the road is barely navigable between the pieces of broken pipe scattered here and there, the holes, and the lack of Flagmen overseeing Heavy Machinery darting too and fro between Bicycles, Strollers, Pedestrians, and cars! Frankly the message I'm getting from our City Fathers is that if I don't like it, MOVE, because we JUST DONT CARE about you, just your TAX revenue.
