The menu is small and doesn't really vary from omelets, hamburgers, pancakes and waffles. But surprises lurk in the specials board-Korean barbecue with kimchi, a linguica-and-eggs breakfast (note to readers: Whenever a restaurant serves this Portuguese sausage, it's a keeper), and a wonderful Hawaiian omelet that's fat with ham and pineapple. And then there's the chicken-fried chicken, a caloric wonder covered with gravy and heart attacks.
