This place was very good. It is your typical diner type spot with very good breakfast. What always sets these places apart are the people and they have a great staff. We will go again.

Flavors like S'mores, Oreo and other gooey delights have kids and adults alike on a sugar high. We got a small stack and split it between two kids. We also tried one of the omelets and the... More

What could be better than marshmallow and chocolate on a waffle? This place is cute, but close quarters. The food was great though. The s'mores waffle was the best and my boyfriend was jealous that he chose something else. Definitely check it out!

Don't understand all the positive ratings.....the food was just okay and we waited very long for it to arrive. I have had better waffles at the free Hampton inn breakfast..the French toast and pancakes were absolutely nothing special. The ham was tough and salty. Maybe it would have been a better idea to order one of their specialty pancakes with... More

This is a small breakfast place that served delicious food. Some of us had omelettes and some had specialty pancakes. They had oreo, pb cup, chocolate chip, cinnamon roll etc as some of the pancake choices. Everything was very good and the service was fast and friendly.
