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

There isn't much extra special about this place. You can get coffee, eggs, regular pancakes, etc. anywhere. However, you CANNOT find the Dutch Apple Pancake anywhere else! It's basically a giant pancake with apples and delicious glaze on it. I tried to make it at home and couldn't do it justice. Get it.

If you come here, come here hungry! The line is out the door. There was a 20 min wait to be seated but it was well worth it! Once seated the service & food don't stop. Serving portions are huge & food is full of flavor. You have a excellent choice of crepes, pancakes, omelets, and other breakfast choices. Staff... More

The place was PACKED! But, had GREAT service. Pancakes so light and fluffy, you'd swear they will float off of the plate. Good size portions for the money. Had sausage links which were also wonderful.

My daughter lives in Michigan now and when I got off my early morning flight from VA we went here for breakfast. I only eat IHOP pancakes, so I was a little skeptical about ordering the pancakes. To my delight I was highly impressed...they were light and fluffy like IHOP are supposed to be! The portions were large and everything... More

Come here hungry, but not RUSHED. You and your party will more than likely have to stand in line; but the food is good. I wish they would add Chicken & Waffles to their menu.

We had the pumpkin pancakes (with whipped cream for a topping) and they were great - very flavorful! Highly recommended :)
