Always pretty good-mountains of yummy breakfast food

Been going here for twenty years, and it never disappoints. Plentiful portions of pancakes, omelets, waffles and other breakfast foods. Great for pre hiking! And they'll make you a free coffee to go, too!

Neat place for a Alpine breakfast experience. Well trained servers with down home hospitality! Pancakes, eggs Benedict were foods of my choice. Went twice with a good experience both visits.

While I'm glad your service was good, it's disappointing to hear that the rest of your experience did not impress you, Laurieh. Most of us have worked here for many years so there is no excuse for our falling short of the mark. I appreciate the feedback, and hope you'll give us another chance to show you what we can... More

We were served immediately after being seated. Our server was friendly and our pancakes arrived quickly. The serving of six pancakes is plenty for two people and they were light and fluffy.

The Swiss theme is pretty; there's plenty to look at. The food is fun and there's lots of it. Most of it was good, some was great, some was okay. My sandwich was dry until I put ketchup on it, then it was enjoyable. My bowl of fruit was good sized, but there was only one pineapple piece and the... More

I love breakfast at Heidi's. The Scandinavian decor is fun and nostalgic, the pancakes are diverse and excellent, and their menu has a huge variety of options to choose from. We ordered poached eggs with sausage links, Raspberry Pancakes, Breakfast Potatoes and the Heavenly Waffle which is a Belgian Waffle topped with strawberries, nice cream, and whipped cream. Our favorite... More

I can't describe how excited I am to know you're passing down some traditions with us! Though it seems like the Heavenly Waffle's strawberries and ice cream is your favorite, it looks like your family got to try quite a few things from our menu, so I'm pleased everything really lived up.

Heidi's is wonderful. We ate there for breakfast.Their was 4 people in our party, we got two meals and a short stack of pancakes and split it between the 4 of us. The portions are large. If I lived in the area it would be a regular place to eat.
