Big Sunday crowd but the service was as if we were the only ones in the place. Thanks, Cassie! It was obvious all the staff is "on their game. " Lots of yummy choices on the menu, potato pancakes to crepes to eggs to skillets, and the coffee cup was never less than half full. Did I say thanks Cassie?

The first time in a long time that I've actually ordered seconds at a restaurant. I ordered the french toast with two strips of thick bacon and scrambled eggs and then ordered more! My husband had a stack of 6 banana pancakes, covered in mounds of whipped cream, with a plate of hash browns. He said they were delicious! Lots... More

Have been here several times now and the quality of the food and friendliness of the staff are very consistent--both are wonderful! The prices are on the low side considering the generous portions (so, yes, come super hungry!) When my relatives come in from out-of-town, they always request to go here. A word of caution, though--sometimes there is quite the... More

This place is always busy. Their omlets are not only huge but delicious. Likewise, any of the speciality pancakes are worth trying. The problem is the wait and it being crowded every weekend.

Have been frequenting Red Apple since they opened some years ago. Only go there for breakfast and all dishes my wife & I have tried are great and prepared as requested. Service is also great and most wait staff are long time employees

I live not far from here and it has been here for like 13 years and I did not try it until I saw the review on Trip Advisor and I am glad I did. The service was great and I made my own skillet and it was great and I cannot wait to take my daughter here soon.
