I'll Definitely Come Back Here!!

You wait in line and look at a menu and while you wait they find you a table. By the time you've gone... read more

The lines look long but, they move very fast. You get your table and "Bam" your order is delivered quickly and very hot. Fastest service I have ever seen.

Located right off PCH this is the place for locals and fan favorites who want amazing breakfast. They have so much more then Pancakes but the reason I always hit this place up is for the Choc Chip pancakes. Cool, relaxed atmosphere, total southern california vibe but real fast good service.

Small but very well run eatery with some of the best breakfast choices in South Orange County. Loved the macadamia pancakes and Portuguese sausage. Omelets are amazing also. Lots of drink choices finish off a perfect morning meal.
