we've been coming here for about 25 years, and it's changed very little in that time. Set in an old house, the original pancake house serves up large portions of everything in the pancake/waffle genre, as well as omelettes and other egg based combinations. The food here is delicious, so expect to wait to get in and sit, particularly on... More

So I have driven past this place on a regular basis for a few years now. Stopped once with my wife, on a weekend, and the wait was incredible. So we passed at that time. But, Monday I had to go out there again for some business and decided to stop again. Being later in the day, I hoped it... More

Overall, a great breakfast experience. This is a local's favorite and came with high reviews and it was very much what we expected. The lines get long quickly so I would target before 9 AM if possible Menu - Good menu, very much centered on pancakes, waffles, crepes, etc. They are extensive and offered all of the family favorites.

We had time in between appointments in the area & had breakfast here, wow! I had the sourdough pancakes & they were nothing like I've ever tasted. My husband had corned beef hash, bacon, poached egg & biscuit & he loved it all! We were especially impressed with the coffee; do much do we bought a can to try at... More

I just read a review by a gentleman who did not like these crepes. I have to tell you, I do not live in the area and I am glad about that. BECAUSE, if I lived close to this place I would weigh 300 pounds. This dish was fabulous and I have been craving it ever since I left! The... More

I found this online, looking for a nice please to breakfast on our trip to Disneyland. And God we loved it, portions are HUGE, not that we are big fans of that, but it was funny, but also, their cooks know their business. Omelets are huge, and really delicious, we especially love the Spanish Omelet. Our server was super friendly,... More

We had to wait about 30 minutes on a Friday morning, but it was worth it. I got the apple pancake: warning it takes like 30 minutes to bake. I didn't realize I ordered that until we had been waiting a long time. It was good, shared it. tasted like a dessert though. My daughter got the pigs in a... More

I always see a line of people outside the door on weekends so I decided to go early on Saturday as they open at 6am. Got there at 7:30am and was seated immediately, yay! Had the best corned beef ever! Also enjoyed the Apple Pancake which was really really good with fresh apple slices. If you have a large group... More
