Have been a few times. Hit and miss re heat of food. Food not hot enough to meet legislation re food poisoning. I was afraid to eat the supposed to be hot courses. Opted for safety. Heath inspectors would definatley have an issue re heat of hot food served.

Great selection and a very popular eatery. Great early offers and the staff will let you choose your own style of pancakes and make them for you fresh. Never disappointing and have visited over a dozen times. Staff always very friendly
