My husband loves the pancakes!!

Ok, we have been going to this Thumbs Up ever since it opened. We finally realized we need to get there really early to really enjoy ourselves. The build-up of folks at the front door is most annoying, otherwise. The food is always delicious and well presented. The biscuits are a bit... read more

Do yourself a favor and get there early. So many breakfast options, so little room in my tummy! I particularly enjoy their pancakes. But they also make their own jams so I'm always tempted to get toast or a biscuit, as well. The servers all seem happy to work there and are efficient, friendly and do not rush you even... More

The pancakes and biscuits were a little dense for my taste and the coffee is just okay. I just do not recall anything very special. I would just as soon go to IHOP.

Everything about this place is average at best. From food, atmosphere and service, nothing stands out. We tried a couple of items: pancakes, potatoes, grits, corn beef hash, and a biscuit. The only thing I would ever get again would be the pancake. Everything else is plain. It fills up quick and people wait, which I would never for the... More

We had pancakes, vegetable omelet ,biscuit, chicken and waffles, coffee and hot cocoa. The bread products were very dense and tasteless. The biscuit almost like a scone. When the food came it was so cold that the butter would not melt on the biscuit or the waffle. The waiter was not well trained as we had to procure our own... More

I've only driven by this place a hundred times and never stopped in, shame on me as I've been missing a great breakfast spot. Everything my family had was excellent and the staff is friendly and works fast. Lots of great options and their lunch menu looked equally good. We got there before the line got really long so be...

The service was excellent. Some portions are big enough for two or your large appetite. I suggest getting 'spuds' with your breakfast if you like potatoes. I got a plate full and couldn't finish! The Challah bread french toast is excellent. This is a really interesting breakfast menu and a very friendly place.

We have been there 3-5 times . The sassy, Portland and Greek scramble are my favorites. The serves are a little slow. Food is among the best in Roswell.

Great place for breakfast any time of the day. Omelets and scrambles are very good. Nice patio for outside dining. Environment can be crowded and noisy at times.
