Golfing in Bend

We had breakfast which was good - home cooking and lots of food. It was fine for breakfast. Poached eggs were perfect.

The food is always good here and the staff is friendly and efficient. There is usually a wait but it seems to always take less time then the project. Bacon is unbelievably good! Lots of choices in pancakes and waffles.

I had the ever popular Joe and my husband had the corned beef hash. We both had fresh squeezed orange juice. The orange juice was by far the best part. My scramble tasted fairly good, but but the presentation of it looked disgusting. The side of pancakes were good too but the syrup was kinda bland. My husband's corn beef... More

Really good breakfast, always busy during breakfast hour. Not cheap, but top notch dutch babies and apple dutch babies. Bacon is good and thick sliced, not rewarmed see-through skimpy pieces. Best bet for breakfast in Bend.

So glad we decided to skip the continental breakfast offered by our hotel and head here for breakfast instead! Our coffee mugs never fell below half full, and our generous breakfast plates were AMAZING! Swedish pancakes, bacon pancakes, and Dutch baby (AKA German egg pancake) was out of this world! Not crazy about their corned beef hash, but that can... More

Breakfast at 7:00 on Monday morning. I had the ham and eggs and I have never seen a slab (rather than a slice) of ham this big. It hung off the plate and was delicious. My wife had the bacon waffle which had malt flour in the mix along with, what else, BACON. It was also delicious. Great for breakfast... More

Great place for a quick and delicious breakfast. I had the pecan stuffed pancakes. They were fluffy and delicious. Went here with my husband and parents and all of us loved our food. Highly recommended.

We stumbled upon this pancake house when leaving Bend, OR. We had one of the best breakfasts here. The wait staff was friendly and helpful. They gave recommendations on the food and places to see in Bend. We loved it so much we wanted to find more of these pancake houses along our trip! I had French crepes with strawberries... More

We loved the atmosphere: plate collection along the wall, stoneware coffee mugs, and servers in old-fashioned uniforms. What we didn't love was the food. We ordered pancakes, as we thought they would be incredible due to the restaurant's name. They were just average. I think I've had a better pancake at Denny's.
