Mama's breakfast half portion is still a lot of food because the pancakes are colossal, covering a full-size dinner plate. Add some pecans and bananas to the pancake and it's like having dessert as your main course. The spinach pie is wonderful for breakfast or lunch. Reuben also a good lunch choice. Friendly staff and good food.

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.

This restaurant is open until 2:30 pm daily and serves breakfast and lunch, with breakfast being served all day. Service was outstanding and very friendly. The food was excellent and very reasonably priced. You can order food in large or small sizes, which is great for small appetites. The menu is very extensive with many choices. This has become a...

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.
