If you are ever in Buffalo visiting it is worth a trip out to the burb of Williamsville to go here for Breakfast/Brunch. The "Dutch Baby" and the "Apple Pancake" (that isn't a pancake at all) are extraordinary - one-of-a-kind menu items. And the OJ is fresh-squeezed. The omelets are also quite nice.

Went on a busy Sunday morning. Waiting area was overflowing. Five of us were seated within 10 minutes. Ordered the Apple Pancake, one of their specialties. Absolutely fantastic creation, filled with sliced apples and cinnamon and topped with a glaze. Large enough to feed three people. Even though it is over an hour drive from my home, will definitely be... More

Best pancakes, not too doughy, light and fluffy. Eggs taste like organic eggs. Coffee is good. Abundant amounts for reasonable price. We haven't had other meals there yet but it all looks really delicious. They have waitresses coming around to give you coffee refills constantly. Haven't seen this in a "dog's age". Wish we had this restaurant in Toronto but... More

My wife and I ate here as we were in the Niagara Frontier area for the Labour Day weekend shopping. This place is certainly busy on weekends and the name says it all on what it serves people. Child friendly with its wait staff. Our food was good along with our service. Did overhear several college bound students at the... More

the whole menu is outstanding, slightly pricy for breakfast, but not so bad for a special breakfast. We don't have OPH in Raleigh, NC area and would be a loyal supporter, along with Brigs, of such a place

We've eaten here on every trip to Buffalo and this is our favorite breakfast spot. You have to get here early on the weekends or you will have to wait for a table. Great coffee, fast and friendly service. Will definitely come back here again on our next trip.

This is an excellent restaurant that focuses on breakfast type meals, although there are other food selections available. The quality of the food and coffee is very good. The entrees are 'adult sized', although a hungry child could complete a meal. The service is very attentive, especially on coffee refills, but is not intrusive. A great restaurant for a spur... More

We walked here from the Hampton Inn. It is minutes away. There were 4 of us and everyone had an amazing breakfast. The portions are enormous. The chocolate chip pancakes were good, the fresh strawberry crepes the best I have ever had and the omelet and original pancakes all good. Service was good and non-stop top ups of coffee. Bacon...

Most enjoyable place to have breakfast or brunch and we always go there when we stay in Williamsville. Service is friendly and the coffee is very good. There is a lot on the menu to choose from and all is very good. Portions are very large and great to share. I have never had a bad meal here. Also the... More

This pancake house is clean and easy to park at. We enjoyed a delicious breakfast. They are a bit pricey. We were four people and all had pancakes, waffles, or eggs with either bacon or sausage, and the bill was $50 plus tip. None of us ordered juice or coffee so that's the price for just the food. Large portions... More
