While in town for a dance intensive, my friend who lives in mg took us here for breakfast. My dancers and myself were in awe of the extensive gf menu! We enjoyed as much as possible and left stuffed and happy! This place should definetly open in small town Iowa...I'd dine here daily!

They also have a remarkably large gluten-free menu with almost all the pancake variations being available gluten-free. Every meal I've had there has been very good with excellent service and reasonable prices. The restaurant is bright,... More

The service was good and the food was excellent. The dutch pancake with apples was tasty and big enough to share. I liked that the hot chocolate was served in a pitcher so I could refill my cup .
