BEST breakfast - period

Fresh squeezed on site orange juice, full flavor buckwheat pancakes and extra thick bacon make this restaurant a place to go to in spite of having to stand in line. It is worth it.

Delicious pancakes. Like really, really delicious. I would go back just for them (and I am not a pancake person . . . They came with my eggs). Service was terrific and the coffee refilled often. I would go again for sure!

Great breakfast! Try the dutch baby if you want a real treat. My kids love the chocolate chip pancakes but I'm partial to the silver dollar pancakes. Everything is great!

If you're looking for standard breakfast fare and a few not so standards items, this is the best place around. Their food is consistently great! Love the pecan waffles and bacon and the Southwest garden baby is to die for. Lots of food so you can easily share! A little pricey for breakfast but totally worth it.

This breakfast house does justice to the morning meal. Everything is fresh, the menu isn't over complicated and the service is exceptional. Breakfast is the only meal served at this establishment. It is uncommon to not see a long line, sometimes out the door, of hungry customers waiting to have of their awesome dishes. The decor is nice, the restaurant... More

We live 15 miles away and yet go here at least once a month for the fantastic breakfasts. We start off with fresh squeezed orange juice and get either fruit-filled crepes with real freshly whipped heavy cream, or an enormous and delicious fluffy omelet (I assume it's baked). The pancakes are also totally awesome. There are so many items to... More

The food is very good. The wait is out the door (twenty minutes). William is the guy that keeps this place running like a finely crafted machine at maximum overdrive. The blueberry pancakes were some of the best I've ever eaten. The butter and maple syrup were high quality (as all ingredients are here). My wife ordered potato pancakes and... More

We enjoy breakfast at this local spot. After an impromptu decision to meet family members there, my husband and I stood in line to wait our turn. We let others go ahead of us as we waited for our party of 7 other family members to arrive. We really needed this time together before everyone returned home. The hosts and... More

This restaurant closes @ 4 pm. We arrived just after 2 pm & the place & parking lot were packed! Booths tend to be preferred, but wait time is less for a table. Service by servers, bussers & managers has always been polite & professional. My pancakes & bacon were delicious. A full order of pancakes is more than most... More
