Great value!

Breakfast here is a terrific value. I love the French toast and the sausage links. The hash browns are fresh and yummy. The pecan pancakes are perfect.

It is rare to find a breakfast location where the food is great, price is reasonable and portions are huge. During our recent visit to Brandon, this quickly became our favorite breakfast location. Highly recommend it.

Finally one of the waitresses acknowledged us and found us a table. We sat and waited several more minutes for someone to come to our table. We gave... More

The waitress never checked on us, I asked for hot sauce she never brought it. I had to ask the busboy for it and asked... More
