This crowded breakfast nook has a big, hungry following. Owner Matt Pool's usually there, slinging a pitcher of orange juice and greeting people who come through the door. The day's specials are scribbled on a chalkboard behind the counter, where people sit down to a good cup of coffee, fluffy pancakes made from scratch, and heaping plates of eggs scrambled with salami. The busy clatter of silverware punctuates the buzz of conversation coming from a tiny side room, and at tables alongside the restaurant's large picture windows, guests are in full view of whoever's waiting outside for a table. Even in the summertime, that could mean a couple dozen people, but quality ingredients and friendly service make it worthwhile. Read our review.
