Good food with generous portions. Parking is at a premium and the place is always packed. They do have gluten free pancakes.

Aunt Emma's has awesome breakfast specials Mon-Fri for $3.99, you can choose from 4 different options. I typically get the #1, which is 2 buttermilk pancakes (or toast), but pancakes are soooo good, I highly recommend, 2 eggs and 2 sausage OR bacon. The #2 is great also, which includes one of their omelettes with 2 pancakes. It's always busy... More

Crazy busy for a reason! The place was packed at 9:30 on a weekday and for good reason. Great food. We got the special of the day and couldn't eat it all and for three of us it was $20. The pancakes are huge, fluffy, and delicious. Great place to eat but not if you are in a hurry!

Stumbled in here looking for a good breakfast. They were super busy but found me a spot right away. My waitress was really good, and several people checked on me several times, food was up really quick and was pretty good for the price. It was a pretty nice little spot.

Service is good, but there's a problem to find a space in the parking área, and inside is too noisy!

My first visit several years ago made me not want to go back after having a rude waitress, but with a Restaurant.com special I'd thought I'd give it another chance. It's okay, not great. Open dining room was loud, the servings were not that generous for a breakfast place, the food was mediocre, but the waitress was nice and helpful.
