Best Breakfast Place Around!

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... read more

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

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
