Full,of locals which must be a good sign. We enjoyed very generous portions including delightful pancakes with all the extras. Not on the tourist route but if you are in Berkeley well worth a visit.

This seems to be the place where the locals eat Sunday brunch. after being told the wait was an hour, we waited about a half hour. they do not take reservations. I had a wonderful omelet with fresh peas, asparagus, and goat cheese. I highly recomend this restaurant.

Our daughters got to devour fluffy stacks of pancakes and crispy bacon while we were able to sip pink guava mimosas and delight in more unique brunch options, like the flavorful local bay shrimp frittata.

Always a must when we vista our daughter. Love, love the cornmeal pancakes here! My latte was excellent. Great chicken sausage. Potato-cheese pancakes are a must! We ordered a small stack for all to share. Place gets busy so reservations are a good idea. Some outdoor seating available. Great service.
