Top Review: “Sunnyside on center was topnotch. Cheaper than Lisa’s better quality food than Early Bird. I love those brunch spots so much… but when it comes to quick and efficient, this is the place for you!I got the mud broom veggie southwest burrito and my boyfriend got the chorizo southwest burrito. We got the pescan roll as a sweet treat, and it was unreal! Incredible, clean, and trendy place! Amazing hash browns and truly amazing coffee as well! Really welcoming, happy, energetic energy in this place.”Emma R.

Top Review: “Best brunch spot in Omaha, bar none. The menu rotates somewhat often but you’ll always have the chance to try something unique. They’ve had barbecue meats on eggs Benedicts, jackfruit burritos, chickpea toasts, kimchee omelettes, banana bread French toast, and so much more. It doesn’t matter if it’s vegan, vegetarian, or carnivore — everything is delicious.

Make sure to ask for the range of Volcanic hot sauces that they carry!” – Sohan P.

Top Review: “Went for lunch on a Wednesday around noon with a friend. This was the second time going here. The first was not very good but I was willing to give it another shot. You order at the counter, they give you a number, and then bring the food out to you. I got the Nashville Hot Fried Chicken Sandwich which was a special. I normally tell them to leave off the pickles in a sandwich like this. I forgot and, thank goodness, because I like it better apparently! My friend got the Eggs Benedict. We both got a house lemonade. Everything was solid. Good ambiance in a cute older building.”- Scott M.

Top Review: “I was back recently and it was another good experience. It was a Thursday morning so seating was quick, but a LARGE party with a couple of families at different tables and different checks had our server tied up for a bit, which she apologized for. No big deal. I’m normally a scramble guy, but I got the GE Omelet. This thing is loaded with ingredients and is covered in cheese and sausage grave. Really good, except the eggs went a little too long and were just a bit toasty on the one side. Thanks to the cheese and gravy, this was no big deal. If I get it again, I’ll definitely see if they can do it as a scramble. Also got some cheesy hash browns and pancakes which all came with it. (No, I didn’t quite finished the pancakes, yes I was in a food coma later)” – Andy D.

Top Review: “Excellent!!!  Fun menu and delish food. We all ordered different items with a lot of diversity and all liked our meals. I highly recommend the AM pot pie if you like pot pies and breakfast gravy.   My husband says the churro waffles were magical.

Very busy- but that is because they have delish food and a fun ambiance.

Wait staff working really hard and cheerful.  I would highly recommend….. but I’m fearful they will get more busy and I won’t get in.” – Kristy C.

Top Review: “This Veggie Omelet was the best I’ve ever had/seen! Ingredients were fresh and crisp. Didn’t feel drowned in oil. I’m not normally an omelette person, much less a veggie omelette, but this was perfect. I’ve had their crepes from inner rail and can only imagine the rest of the menu is delicious! Also, the waitresses were fantastic! The one note I had was I subbed mushrooms for onions and it would’ve been nice if the onions were warm like the rest of the omelette. I’ll be back!” – Beth W.

I immediately fell in love with the coffee options of the week. My pumpkin caramel latte was delicious! I can’t remember the name of my order but WOW delicious as well!

Top Review: “I loved everything about this eclectic little cafe and would travel out of my way to come back. Everyone was so friendly the owner came out and stopped by tables of regulars to check in. My omelette was delicious and I especially enjoyed the fresh avocado slices on top. My husband’s eggs and bacon were cooked just how he likes them.

So cozy and welcoming.  I love the atmosphere and it’s fun to go in and see everyone enjoying their food 🙂 I usually get the pancakes – they’re HUGE. But this time I got an omelette w hash browns. They were so good, I just love everything on this menu. They always have fun stuffed toast and different specialties. The hot chocolate is another a favorite of mine! The staff is always SO nice just 10/10 overall
