THE PLACE: Located on the property of University Mall, across the parking lot from Academy Sports and Outdoors. It is situated in a strip storefront facing away from Davis Hwy. The décor is like your Aunt’s house, cozy and comfy with wooden furniture. The seating is plentiful. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable.

We tried two selections: The Parisian Benedict. It is a buttery croissant half layered with smoked ham, sautéed portabella mushrooms and melted Swiss cheese. Topped with two poached eggs, creamy hollandaise sauce and fresh green onions.
We also tried the Corned Beef Hash & Eggs. It consisted of corned beef mixed with potatoes and onions. Topped with two eggs any style (I got mine scrambled). Served with creamy hollandaise sauce and an English muffin.
Both dishes were fresh and very tasty. The coffee was delicious as well, we tried a pecan blend.
