Not your ordinary breakfast place

Expect waits. Try to call ahead. No kids menu. Their crepes are cold but there is nice service. There are good muffins and the coffee is at the perfect temperature. The muffins are very sweet and great with butter. Great food. Big portions. The waffles are very rich.

From the moment we walked through the door, the staff was smiling and very friendly. This is a place where locals hang out as witnessed by one of the wait staff hugging incoming patrons and that was very surprising. The dining area is an eclectic variety of tables and chairs and close together, which was nice. Coffee was excellent, excellent... More

On a Sunday morning, we were looking for a nice restaurant which specializes in breakfast and 'Kiss the Cook' sure fit the bill. I am told there is always a waiting line, but the wait wasn't long as the friendly waitresses kidded with us that we would be fed soon. We were. Your breakfast starts with a basket of delicious...

One of the best places in Downtown Glendale for breakfast. Skip the stupid Denny's and Ihop's and come here instead. This place is the real deal. Good home cooking. Excellent muffins!

Our family decided to go out for breakfast the day after Thanksgiving. My son found this little restaurant in Glendale, Arizona close to where my Mother-in-law was staying. There were 5 of us and we had no reservation. There was quite a line but we decided to wait. It seemed that this little place is perfect for regulars who seemed... More

Cozy local restaurant. A perfect example of "diners" cafe. Mismatch of this and that, great food, and seriously..seriously the pancakes have excellent flavor, the muffins are a great draw and even the syrup does not feel/taste watered down. Well worth the hunt and a great "find"! Love going there!

Nice little neighborhood place. It's small, kinda crowded, and the tables and chairs have that artsy mismatch thing happening - but the muffins and pancakes were great. Yes, I will be back and I would recommend it to those willing to try a place with a different feel.

What a cute, kitschy place, and the food is really good. The omelettes are nice, fluffy and huge. The French Toast is made with whole wheat bread, and you have lots of choices that are a bit unusual for a little cafe in this part of town, such as snow peas and pulled pork for omelettes, and several different types...
