A very good breakfast place. We went on a Saturday morning, it was packed. They serve a very solid breakfast, everything was nicely done. Service could not have been better. I can see why they have such a following! Only complaint, unless you like the early farmhouse done modern with a bunch of plastic roosters around, the atmosphere was pretty... More

I have tried this place several times. The food is excellent, but the prices are a little to rich for the food.

Went back again in April 2014 with my 5 year old son. Food, service, and price are all very good as I remembered a year ago. We will definitely go back again some time soon. Love this place. Wish it has a chain in Quad Cities area.

My wife and I have been eating here since they opened. I have a few favorites, while she more often tries the frequently changing special. Today, in celebration of my retirement next week, I took eleven members of my department there for lunch at one. They close at two. Michelle really went to a lot of trouble to be sure... More

We had a very nice family breakfast. The wait was easy with the complimentary coffee and other DG window shopping spots nearby. Nice variety for the whole family...giant pancakes for my son, tasty Skillets for me and my wife, and cheese grits for my daughter. On a Sunday morning, it can get a little loud and you may feel the... More

I'm an omelette kind of guy and my wife more of a crepe person, but we both can found something we like. The menu is big and varied, The portions are not gigantic but we often bring something home. Coffee is great,service staff are warm and friendly, and I never had a bad meal.

My wife and 2 kids (9 & 12) have eaten here multiple times. It is one of the few restaurants we can always agree upon and where everyone can find something on the menu that meets their needs. I like that there are multiple healthy options. My family are more traditional breakfast restaurant eaters. We always get good service and... More

My 4-year-old and I went there around 10:30 am on a Saturday and there was a 20 minutes wait. My son was hungry but the waiting outside on a sunny summer day was not that bad. Finally we went in and we ordered something typical you would order for breakfast. The food was large in portion and both my son... More
