The"Grandma Team" loved the apple pancakes. We called ahead so not to wait the required 30 minute wait to bake them. Great omelettes and blueberry pancakes. Served with toast or pancakes and hash browns. Always enough to bring home in a doggy bag.

Went for breakfast. Eggs were okay, you really have to try to screw up eggs.., the mini waffles were undercooked with no real flavor. We asked for some salsa for topping on the eggs and got charged for a small cup (usually salsa is included, like catsup or tabasco..) Just felt like I was nickled and dimed there. My wife's... More

We thought of venturing out a little to get a variety of food. WOW is the word best describes my visit. We took our sailor there for breakfast before we left for the airport. This place is not only clean, but the wait staff was absolutely awesome! We would highly recommend this place for it's wonderful, tasteful, filling food. I... More

Mediocre at best. My bacon was cold, I received rotten grapes, and toast was forgotten. I had to flag down another waitress to request it. Waitress was attentive but not very pleasant. I had to grab my own left over containers. Very over priced for the quality of food.

The food was great! Loved the Denver omelet with pancakes and the chopped steak and eggs were cooked perfectly.

We found this restaurant on TripAdvisor, it was rated very well. It has an unassuming exterior, but still bright and cheery. What we found was an extremely clean and bright restaurant that felt a bit like eating in your Grandmother's kitchen. We ordered waffles for breakfast, when they arrived, the waffles were nearly the size of the huge plate it... More

It is a friendly environment. Inexpensive foods, good scramble eggs, good orange juice. They have several good options for breakfast, but they have worst coffee I have tasted in decades. They make it very watery, I assume to save the cost. To be a Pancake House, I expect a real maple syrup, instead they only have corn syrup... the texture... More
