We went looking for pancakes...I was fine with the crepes and the apple and honey ones were delicious! Great atmosphere and the bottomless coffee was a great addition!

This is a great place to stop in for breakfast! Awesome food and you're in Aruba so that makes everything better. I recommend the poffertjes plan or with chocolate sauce. Come and enjoy!

Great place to get filled up for a busy day of vacation or to laze on the beach and sleep it off! I got the special for the day that was eggs, bacon, hash browns and silver dollar size pancakes with drink for $12. Service was friendly and quick.
