My wife and I showed up Saturday morning for breakfast before we headed off to an all day competition event at the local high school. The place was jammed pack with a line out the door, but we were able to get seating at the bar relatively quickly. I ordered: Coffee, Whole Grain Blue Cornmeal Pancake, and Two Egg Omelet... More

Wonderful place to get great food for breakfast or lunch. Staff is very friendly and portions are huge. The owner was on site and took time to talk to us. It is a very popular place so sometimes there is a wait but well worth it.

Terrible service. The waitress was sweet,but the owner was actually pushing for us to leave. I know they were busy, but that is what we go out for to relax. The food wasn't anything great. The Waffle House beats them all !

We're delighted that we could make a pancake believer out of you! You're right that everything is made fresh from scratch, including that vanilla sauce you dished up on your pancakes and coffee. We hope you'll get the chance to come back to try some more things off our expansive menu in the future! Hope to see you soon, Jeff,... More

Saturday about noon 45 min. wait BUT well worth it. Everything we ordered was great. There was so much that we all took about half our meal home to savor later. I make a really good waffle but in my 64 years on the planet this is the best pancake I have ever had.

On our road trip we eventually wanted to try American pancakes. These well exceeded our expectations. Very delicious and bery American. Especially when it comes to portion's size. We were wondering if to order 2 or 3 "pieces" set but should have gone for just single. And they have specials for body builders from nearby fitness club. Can't imagine how... More

I ordered a Fruit Platter and it arrived with yogurt; I don't recall this being noted on the menu. They had to replace this because I don't eat dairy! The berries on the platter also required a spoon and the waitress had to go back and get that, too. Our waitress was very delightful and earned her tip with those... More

Savory breakfasts are never complete without a couple of pancakes on the side -- we agree completely! Having a hard time narrowing down a selection is one of the most difficult (but best) problems to have, so we're glad you were able to settle on some home runs. The wait is always quite long on Saturday mornings like you noted,... More
