Food was plentiful and tasty! I had the pancakes of course and they were light and fluffy! The orange tasted like they had just hand squeezed it in the kitchen. YUMMY!

Our entire family loves this place. The Banana macadamia nut pancakes with coconut syrup are amazing. The best part is all the pancakes can be made Gluten Free! The Location in Mission Viejo is great too!

We liked the food and especially the service. We were part of a large group of family and friends who had attended a wedding the night before. The employees went out of their way to help us put tables and chairs together so we could all sit together.

I’m sorry to hear that we failed to make your experience outstanding, Ftaubert. The elevator and courtyard are community facilities that we share with all of the business in the shopping center; however, I will certainly see what can be done to improve it. We pride ourselves on adhering to the highest levels of cleanliness and want all of our... More
