Great variety of pancakes

Group of four went for breakfast. Three had pancakes and one had the french toast. They offer many varieties of each and everyone enjoyed the one they ordered. I can attest to the Blueberry-Rasberry Crunch. I normally like my pancakes plain, but this topping was great. Our server was very... read more

First time here we had two scrambled eggs which seemed more like four with raisin toast and home fries. The home fries were tasty. The next day we went back again for breakfast and I had a blueberry raspberry pancake which was delicious. There are plenty of tables and this is a popular place. The prices are a bargain for...

If you love big breakfasts and local places Instead of the larger chain places, then this is the place for you. They have a great selection of pancakes and omelettes. The pancakes are huge and the omelettes must be made with four to five eggs each. I would recommend sharing. We went to eat at this breakfast cafe on a... More

It's okay for a break while shopping at the outlets. Wouldn't make a special trip. It's also a good place for husbands to sit while waiting for shoppers.

If you like Reese's pieces or macadamia nuts and chocolate in your pancakes then this is the place for you. Huge selection of pancake flavors to choose from. Otherwise just a country style diner. Surprised at how many people seem to rave about the place. It's a good family pancake diner that is just ok.

Have not been here for years since it was The Dolly Madison. Completly different atmosphere. They apperantly do a very good breakfast. All tables set up with Maple Syrup. little funky as the building and bar area have a good feel, but feels like a Vermont Diner with the fake wood tables. As for the food we went with wings,... More

Eggs were good, HUGE portions! Home friends were terrible, unless you like black potatoes and alot of black pieces mixed in. It is like they cleaned the... More

When a sign says "Please seat yourself", you do. There is no need for two waitress to be nasty, rude and chase you off a table. While I have enjoyed eating there in the past, never again will I step in the place. There is zero excuse for that king of behavior by people who depend on customers. Plus there... More
