Something here for everyone including gluten free pancakes for my son with Celiac disease. He loved them. Was tempted to get some to go the following day on our way to the airport. I had a great breakfast burrito and my wife had the eggs benedict. All fantastic.

This place doesn't look like much and seating is a little limited but if you get here before the crowd which is lined up out the door, you won't be sorry. The omelettes, crepes and scrambles are my faves but really this place is known for its pancakes. The gluten free pancakes are $3 more but you would never even... More

Went here with a group, limited seating some inside and some outside, staff was incredible. Plenty of choices and the food was great. Prices were fair and food was HOT. Easy little walk from our hotel and a great local spot. Skip the Denny's at the bottom of the hill and have a local experience you won't regret it!

We drove down from Laguna Beach to try out this place. It was delicious!!! The pancakes were excellent. Be sure to get here early as a line does form out the door. There is plenty of seating outside and inside. I look forward to coming back on any future trips to the area!

Took my daughter and friends here for breakfast and everything was delicious! Pancakes are light and fluffy with a variety of toppings and fillings. Fitness omelet with egg whites and fruit was a nice option for the healthy eater. The line was long but moved quickly and the food was worth it!

The menu is interesting. They serve breakfast and lunch only. The French Toast dipped in Captain Crunch cereal is interesting with the sweetness and texture. Waffles are great with whipped cream and fruit. The Portuguese sausage and eggs with rice reminds me of something you would find in Hawaii. It is delicious. Crowded in the mornings, especially weekends.
