  • Top review: “Stop here for fresh delicious food in a clean and casual setting. We opted for the Mexican food but some were ordering breakfast, an all-day menu option. Those looked great and I considered those items until I finally decided. I had a taco meat quesadilla with the most flavorful ground beef filling — ground meat deliciously seasoned with what I don’t know but the caramelized bits of onion were noted and appreciated. Yet even the onions were great! Perfect amount of cheese not greasy at all but crispy nonetheless. Partner had the taco meat burrito which tasted delicious but not similar to the quesadilla at all. Rice, refried beans, bits of tomato and lettuce were wrapped in a homemade flour wrap. These were so good we split them so each of us could enjoy! If you are near Schenectady, it’s right off 890. Lots of menu options — something for everyone.” — jeffbrody

We came this morning, a Wednesday around 10 a.m. and it was packed. I ordered something I have never eaten before… orange cranberry pancakes. Very good. My hubby got more standard fare with eggs over easy, home fries, bacon, toast. He said the potatoes were nicely browned. The waitress was on point with coffee and tea refills, even bringing a lemon when not even asked. A little pricey for breakfast but very tasty. Would come again but not for all the time… special occasion because of the prices.” — Tricia S
