It's just bacon and eggs, people, so charging an arm and leg to see the staff dressed in pajamas hardly makes up for the ridiculous pricing. Lots of crap on the walls, but don't bother asking about it because no one knows nothing. A real drag.

Not horrible. Decent food. Over priced. Weird atmosphere. Average. Would return if forced to. I'd rather a Manhattan bagel sandwich

I like the concept of this place but the execution is subpar. The place is kind of dirty and run down. The food is ok (not good, just ok). I am not too into it. I've been a couple of times and would prefer an IHOP or a standard diner over it.

It is good food served by a staff decked out in pajamas and if you wear yours there you get a discount off your bill. They have classic choices and some different ones like waffle sandwiches which I had and will have again

If you are in the Toms River area this is a great place to stop for breakfast. They have good food and a fun attitude. The employees wear pajamas and will laugh and joke with you. I stop there whenever I am in the area and I would suggest you try it to.

The food is good...all "made to order". The staff are very friendly and attentive. When it's busy it can feel a little claustrophobic because of the close range between tables. The atmosphere is very interesting, unique and entertaining. The staff wear pajamas as their uniforms...if you wear yours you will get 10% off your meal! The menu is well designed... More

Sit down, shut up n eat. In and out. Order something good, how u like it or try something different. It's all good. But don't take up too much time. There are customers waiting for ur table. That's how busy they are. But there is no rush.
