You have to go at least once.

This is not your run of the mill breakfast place. The décor has to be experienced to appreciate. The wait staff are in PJs and they go out of their way to make you feel welcome. The menu is also unique. They have regular breakfast fare but they also have a creative side if your are in the mood... read more

I don't know if I could make this a regular breakfast spot but it was definitely an experience like no other. The food is decent and the service is ok, I think what gives this place its charm is the unconventional dining experience. I had the bacon, egg and cheese waffle sandwich which was good and filling.

Very expensive for a diner type restaurant. Hot dogs and their rolls to big for normal eaters. Two dogs, two snack size bags of chips, two ice teas. $22.00

Have never been a place like this before! It was so interesting with all the mismatched silverware and plates, it works for this spot. Food was good, huge portions and potatoes were nice and crisp!

What a fun and yummy food spot. The waitstaff immediately greets you upon entering. They are all super friendly and engaging. The menu is huge and there are so many delicious combinations of things to eat that it can be a bit intimidating. I am quite sure though that whatever you eat will be delicious. Lots of kitschy decor and... More

This is my hands down favorite place to eat. the staff wears there pajamas and they all scream "HI" and "BYE" when you leave and enter. The food is cheap and yummy and you get a lot. the place is quirky with all antiques and random stuff around. Defiantly ask for a frosted glass with a drink you get! I... More

It is worth going off the beaten path for breakfast here. The menu is so packed with yummy breakfast ideas from stuffed French toast to waffle sandwiches. Try the various fresh fruit selections and the omelettes too! Allow plenty of time because the food is cooked fresh and the restaurant is packed on weekends.
