As our first breakfast in the USA, The Griddle Cafe set a very high standard for our breakfasts to come. French Press coffee to start, friendly service and a helpful introduction to the menu. Big tip:unless you want to eat a weeks worth of pancakes to yourself, then order one serve between 4 I think. Or take their advice and... More

Came here at 12:30 for breakfast (they do all day breakfast). I ordered eggs, bacon and fruit while my girlfriend ordered the The Golden Ticket- pancake stuffed with caramel, walnuts and streusel. One recommendation: the pancakes come standard as three, order just one-that's enough! You'll thank me later :)

We went to the Griddle with a large group and big appetites for breakfast. Many of us were first-timers and were not ready for the size of the pancakes coming out of the kitchen. A regular order of pancakes is three thick cakes each 12 inches in diameter, at least. One order is really enough for two or three. The... More

This was the best breakfast ever. I ordered something healthy...lol eggwhite omelet with veggies, but my friend ordered the peanut butter stuffed french toast covered in whip cream. It was to die for. I will be back

Who doesn't love The Griddle! They have massive servings and great options. I highly recommend the black magic pancakes which has Oreos broken into the batter and the most rich cream topping. It's crack good. And for the amount of food it's really affordable. A couple can easily share an order and both be full. Or you can have half... More

Holy mother of all that is giant. American portions done right. Come famished. In fact when coming here for breakfast/brunch, I highly suggest you skip dinner the night before. Also leave all your snug fitted clothes at home, it'll do you no good my friend. My gal pal and I had a side of turkey sausage, bacon, and the Golden... More

Waited half an hour to get in and it was an experience. Firstly, the tea is the best I've had so far in America, so that was a great start. Our server was very efficient. Didn't say much, but not like had a lot of time, as the place was rammed. Settled on the peanut butter French toast and the... More

I must have tried to get into this restaurant three times before I was able to experience what all the hoopla is all about. With so many positive online reviews I needed to see if this would be my "new" to-go spot. There is always a line outside of this small hole-in-the wall. Advertisement in itself. We must have waited... More
