There is a shortage of good breakfast places in Corvallis, so this place has a corner on the market right now. (If you want to open up a breakfast place of your own, this would be a good place to do it!) As a result, it's usually busy. The servers are not very professional. They are nice and all, but I get the sense that they either don't have a whole lot of experience or simply don't care. You can expect to wait a long time for a table even though some dirty ones are empty. I wish someone would teach them to seat guests right away and give them something to drink. That should take priority over having a random conversation or stacking glasses, which are both things I have witnessed there while waiting for my seat/coffee. I also hate that they try to charge more for coffee refills. One of the things I love about American diner-style places is the free coffee refills. Anyway, if they started giving free refills and trained their servers to act like professionals and speed up a little, it would be better.
This little cafe has REALLY good food and a fun atmosphere however, it is frustrating to be up front waiting for a table when there are several dirty ones and no sense of urgency by the staff to clean them and get the customers seated. GRRRRR!!! Very rude.
