We ordered breakfast and were pleased with the quick and friendly service. The portion sizes for the meals we ordered were more than we expected and the food was served hot. Omelets were fresh and pancakes were served with warm syrup. We could not eat it all, and gladly took the remaining morsels with us to enjoy latter! We needed... More

My server was just simply inspiring. He name was Athena and as a solo customer I had the ability to people watch. The restaurant was very crowded however she made each and every customer feel special. She really has a gift and this restaurant is lucky to have her. I saw her actually assist a handicapped man with his meal.... More

A fantastic place for breakfast or brunch, but be prepared to wait a few minutes for a table as this place is very, very popular. Both the food and service are really good, the portions are generous, but not too huge (from a European perspective) and the whole ambience is very welcoming. Also, of real note is that GLUTEN FREE... More

The portabella omelet was amazing, as was the frittata with avocado. I ordered blueberry pancakes and was given the choice between fresh blueberries or "glaze" - I said all I wanted was blueberries in the cakes (isn't that what blueberry pancakes are?) and the server said, "You mean fresh blueberries." The pancakes came plain with about 8 berries sprinkled on... More

Had breakfast here this AM on my way to a meeting. Two eggs, two pancakes, two slices of bacon and two sausages..... Really yummy stuff. Those are some serious pancakes. Everything was great and the service was excellent.

Stopped in here for breakfast on a Friday morning on a whim. My husband and I were quickly impressed with the service; very welcoming owner took us to our seat and asked about our morning. We don't eat out for breakfast very often but when we do, we almost always have the same thing, a veggie skillet. Here, the veggie... More

Absolutely the best restaurant for breakfast or lunch. It's the place to meet and greet. The food is delicious, prepared however you like it. Waitstaff friendly and ambience cozy and warm. My favorite restaurant. Toby E

Terrific restaurant with great breakfast menu. Reliably excellent meals. Great service. The only negative is the wait (sometimes over an hour) on weekends.

Rise N Dine Pancake Cafe is my absolute favorite spot for breakfast. Great service and great food and an affordable price. Usually busy, but the service is great and the wait is always worth it.
