We had heard about this from Trip Advisor reviews. The pancake was sweet and gooey - excellent! What a great place for breakfast or... More

I have been here a few times and it is always worth the wait. I love their cinnamon roll pancakes. Warning: they are huge! My husband has had the thanksgiving flavored omelette and loved it as well.

The restaurant, open only til 2 p.m. daily, is located in an old house. While this is a quaint location, there's not much room inside for seating.

This restaurant is in an old house that has ambiance. The food is EXCELLENT. If you want a down home, large meal, this is the place. There may be a wait and they are closed on Tuesdays and close at 3...but it is worth the wait. Staff is friendly, food is made individually for each customer. My favorite is their... More

Excellent every time - just a bit too crowded to be really comfortable & the wait times are too long!

It's crowded but if you have the time, this is where you need to go. I personally love the Creme Brulee French Toast- you can't go wrong!

Took my daughter to Salem, Oregon for her sophomore year at Willamette University and wanted to experience the food at Word of Mouth restaurant. it's a quaint little place in a renovated house not far from the university. They don't take reservations so we had to wait awhile, but we were amply rewarded. Our server was very friendly and helpful... More
