We've been here a few times for breakfast and it's always been very good. They tend to get very busy so you have to be prepared to wait for a table. This last time I'm not sure what happened, but we were told about 20 min for a table and they were seating people left & right and everyone was... More

Never disappointed at this place -- had fantastic omelette this time, very good! Place was crowded as usual on weekends, so you have to be prepared to wait, but it is worth it!

There were eight of us in our group. After a wait for a table, shorter than expected, we were seated. A very friendly waitress who was very knowledgeable about the menu, took our orders. She suggested changes to accommodate the desires of members in our group. The changes actually saved us money. The food was good and plentiful. All members... More

The food here is excellent. Order the omelets they are made with 4 eggs, whipped fluffy, filled with the ingredients of your choice and then baked. Pancakes, fresh toast or waffles some of the best I've ever had. The service is always top notch. Go early or you will ahve a wait.

This place has just about every imaginable pancake option you can think of, and it's all top notch. You would expect the pancakes to be good, and they are, but combine that with great service and a wonderful menu of assorted items, this is a really nice breakfast spot. Coffee was also very good.

We met here for lunch with a group of friends. It's all breakfast items until 11am when they offer a limited number of lunch dishes. Everyone enjoyed their meal. I ordered a cup of green tea. It was served in a beautiful silver pot and yellow tea cup with honey and lemon. For the meal, I had oatmeal with strawberries... More

Good menu choices but the food wasn't anything special. We went on a Saturday morning and it was packed so be prepared for a short wait.

We were staying in Bloomington and were looking for a good breakfast place. At first I didn't want to go because I thought it was an iHop, but don't be fooled, this place is far from it. We ended up going twice on our trip because the food and service was so good. I had a basic breakfast with pancakes... More

Have been coming to OPH for many years. Good menu choices for breakfast. Their Rosti is excellent. Their cocfee may not appeal to all though.

Lots of choice for breakfast at reasonable prices. It's almost always full and there can be a wait at peak times during the morning. Unlike many places the server comes around frequently with coffee refills.
