We tried this place out while vacationing in Los Angeles. Amazing!!! Fast service and friendly staff. The omelets are delicious but huge, you can easily share with someone and they also come with pancakes. Would definately come back. Good prices too.

Great pancakes and I enjoyed the diced ham and eggs. Good coffee and friendly servers. This place seemed to have lots of locals. Place was packed but service was quick.

I'm not a huge pancake lover, as a matter of fact, i rarely eat them. One morning my brother and his friends wanted to go have some breakfast so they chose this place. Normally i would just order some bacon, eggs, and toast but for some reason as i scanned through the menu the banana pancakes caught my eye. I... More

The best pancakes you'll ever eat. The pancakes run $8-11, which appears a bit steep at first, but it's a ton of food. I favor the 49er flapjacks, but also like the pecan pancakes and Dutch babies. Plan on splitting the apple pancake if you order that. I've never seen one person finish it by themselves. The omelets are terrific,... More

POTATO PANCAKES are memorable. Reasonable prices. This is not IHOP. It's a diner that I am looking forward to visiting again. Only open for breakfast, but they do breakfast extremely well.

If your like pancakes, this is the place. I recommend, the 49 er flapjacks, pecan pancakes, Dutch baby and the apple pancake. That last one's a whopper, so think about splitting it. Great bacon and giant omelets. Very attentive service, whether it's busy or not. It can get loud, so get a booth if you're with someone who has a... More

When you arrive, there will be people outside, large groups lined waiting for tables. Wait is at least half an hour. The menu is pretty good. The potato pancakes were actually like really flat hashbrowns, not pancakes in the traditional sense. I like the Eggs Michael, it's sausage patties with gravy and mushrooms. The portions are massive of course. Coffee... More

Restaurant wasn't that busy when we arrived. Maybe less than one third of seats were taking. We asked kindly receptionist not bring any guests who had a strong... More
