Excellent! Ordered a-la-carte soft scrambled eggs. Usually they’re either slimy whites or still over cooked but these were perfect. Hubby’s sunny side eggs also came out perfect, white was cooked – not an easy feat with a sunny!

Huevos rancheros tasted amazing and the hot sauces were flavorful but not too spicy to eat. All in all, great view, great food and great service.

Great place to grab brunch! Staff is attentive and friendly, food is amazing, views are spectacular! We try and get outside seating when weather permits.

Been here twice and loved it more each time! First visit I tried the Cove Burger, the patty was juicy and the hatch chili gravy put it over the top. The second time I had the Fried Chicken and Biscuits. The breading in the chicken was flavorful, the biscuit was flaky and the hatch chili is so addicting!

Came here for lunch and ordered the Crab Benedict. They loaded on the crab meat, made the hollandaise sauce perfectly flavorful and creamy, the biscuit was moist but had a crisp texture on the outside, and the side of potatoes were delicious!

The server was very attentive and always stopped by to see if anything else was needed. Overall, I really enjoyed the atmosphere, the food was great and the service was very enjoyable.
