I don't remember if I've had a meal at Carnation with its current menu; I do remember starting out many DL trips with breakfast there. Especially after the Sunkist House (I presume) was replaced. Breakfast at the Carnation was a pleasant way to start the day - mostly egg dishes though, which my wife couldn't stand. (It was the eggs, not the way they were prepared.) Coffee seemed better than the grab-n-go stuff.
