are fantastic. The pancakes are the size of Jack's head. And they have mimosas. We the the small diner feel food fits just right in my stomach. Only downside is that the location only offers street parking. But after you finish your huge portions, you will do good with a little stroll to the car after.

Sat at the counter as there wasn't a table available straight away. Made no difference to us whatsoever. Ordered the banananana which is basically pancakes stuffed with banana. Constantly being topped up with water throughout whole time. Husband ordered French toast which he said were amazing. Most of my breakfasts on my trip have been pancakes because they are just...

OMG!!! Food is soooo good! Do not miss this place. Portions are huge so come with an appetite. We both had the French Toast...seriously the best french toast I have ever had! The size of the bread is almost the size of your plate. I couldn't believe it. I got a side of hash browns (didn't need that!) and my... More

Everything we had was amazing. I love breakfast food in general and this place really hit the spot! I had the Wholey Moley with strawberries and blueberries and egg whites with avocado and refried beans on the side (I told you I LOVE breakfast). The food was all great and you can customise anything and everything. The portions are HUGE.... More

If this ranking doesn't show the folly of internet websites and how their reviews and websites can be manipulated and skewed, I don't know what does. Good food? Yea, for a diner, but also pricey for what you get. So if you want to wait in line to overpay for breakfast, enjoy!

We ate here as part of our trip from the uk as a 4 and with a small baby. They were very accommodating with the stroller and after a 20 minute wait outside we were seated. Soooo worth the wait we ordered a portion of pancakes each expecting a portion we got like 14" pancakes x3 each. One portion could... More

Good coffee, food and lucky they had take away because of the large portions. Red velvet pancakes were overhyped

Fantastic breakfast no bad choices, great portions, incredibly busy, great servers. The outdoor dining stinks, the past two times I've gone I have taken my dogs, so I have to sit outside... it's just a street with tables and chairs... but that is the only negative I have about this great place.

This restaurant was recommended by my daughter on a recent trip to LA. It's all about breakfast and then some. The pace is fast, the place noisy, but the service was very good, the french press coffee table side was delicious and that's even before you take a taste of the pancakes. There is every kind of pancake imaginable. I... More
