The staff was nice but was not able to substitute from their limited breakfast menu. I ended up having to order from the regular menu to accommodate our dietary needs. But if you don't have diet restrictions the take it to go menu is good, as you can have a sandwich or burrito, etc. and coffee, and they pack to take with you if needed.
