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

If you are in the mood for almost any kind of awesome pancake, breakfast item, you've got to try this place. The "Dutch baby" takes a while to prepare but if you are a large group someone should order it. (It's a cross between a crepe, a pancake, and a soufflé) Best to be shared! The home fries were fresh,... More

My wife and I came upon this as we were driving through to go shopping. Curiosity got the best of us and we decide to try. This decision came to be the right one as the atmosphere, service and food turned out to be exceptional. We are certain that a return visit is necessary to curve our excitement.

Ate breakfast here twice in recent weeks and found their pancakes to be extremely good. They appear to have high quality standards - refusing to serve my brother a waffle that looked unappetizing and instead cooking a new one (he never saw the failed example). The coffee was of good quality as was the orange juice. Prices seem a bit... More
