Sunday morning may not be the best time to go. We waited about 40 minutes for the 2 of us. Atmosphere is fun...great people watching. Our meals we superb! Corn beef hash, lemon/blueberry hotcakes and make sure you get the hash browns... Awesome! The wait was more than I wanted but the breakfast was great. Just be prepared to wait... More

Great little restaurant in the revitalized German neighborhood in Columbus. Very friendly people, great food, unbelievably inexpensive, the best sausage and bacon I've ever tasted. Not to be missed.

My husband and I started our weekend with breakfast here. It's a very good mom and pop type place. The restaurant is very small so be prepared to wait. Once we got our food though, we were very happy!

After reading reviews we thought this would be a " fun " place to meet for lunch. The location is in a " run down " area. The waitress was very nice... The food was typical " truck stop " diner food...and if you visit the restroom you will be appalled by the uncleanliness of the kitchen and dish washing... More

I hesitate to tell anyone about this place because it's very popular and busy, yet it's small and intimate. Prices are extremely reasonable, and the breakfasts are wonderful!

This place is a classic - a mainstay for breakfast in Columbus. My server was great. Greeted me right away and took my order. He kept my coffee filled. The one thing I didn't care for was other members of the staff complaining about another customer in front of me. Very unprofessional no matter who was right.
