I now live right behind OPH, but i still don't get there that often. But this places makes the most delicious omelettes. I get amazed at the fact there could be so many varieties of such a simple dish - Omelette I usually order the same dish every time - the Santa Fe omelette and their quality... read more

Was easily able to get a low carb breakfast that really hit the spot: eggs, cottage cheese, and their excellent bacon. I think the bacon at Patty's Eggnest in Seattle is still the best I've ever had, but this is thick, well cooked, and tasty. This place leaves the vast majority of local pancake houses I've tried in the dust... More

Went for a family breakfast during the week (Spring break!). Ordered two different omelettes and the dutch oven pancake. All were served at the exact same time, hot, fresh, and delicious. My husband commented on how much bacon was in his omelette, he loved the taste of the bacon. Coffee was refilled frequently and was delicious also. the dutch oven... More

Whether eating breakfast with friends, clients, colleagues or by myself, I have always enjoyed the food served here. No matter what day or time of day, the parking lot is usually full. My favorites are the Eggs Florentine with Potato Pancakes and the Swedish Pancakes with lingonberry butter. Coffee is OK, orange juice is fresh-squeezed, and wait staff is attentive.... More

The food is always great. Service is too! Try to avoid the busy times, so you don't need to wait! The kitchen does a very good job making delicious breakfast items, with an extensive variety of options.

This is a Nice breakfast spot. Not your cookie cutter chain. Expect long waits, especially on weekends. But food is very good.

99% of the time we go for breakfast - though I have had a good sandwich and salad at lunch.... I love, love, love their crepes. Amazing. Skip the maple syrup and just use the strawberry puree and homemade whip cream! You're welcome.

Well, my pancakes were delicious due to the awesome syrup they serve here. My hubby loved everything on his plate as well as some on mine. In fact, I think he ate the actual plate. Here is why it isn't four or five stars. They make their corned beef hash with onions as an ingredient and that totally threw off... More

Enjoyed a quick visit here, or would have been quick but we had a 45 min wait on a sunday morning. Anyway the food was excellent, a bit pricey but good however the waitress was not all that grand and the service in general lacked the quality of the food. Worth a visit.
