I have been eating here since I was little, and the food is to die for! I always skip the motel breakfast and come here! I can never sleep thinking about going there to eat in the morning! The best egg dishes, the best pancakes (you'll forget IHOP!), and the best cup of coffee in town! A little spendy, but... More

We had a large party for breakfast. The food was wonderful and came out fast and correctly. The staff was extremely polite and helpful. Would eat there again and often. The best pancakes I ever had.

49er flapjacks at noon. Three large unrolled sweet crepes with sweet butter and imitation maple syrup. A large glass of fresh squeezed orange juice. No sides or extras $14. You won't believe this could possibly fill you up. Plus they're delicious. Come hungry. I don't think the wait staff like it when you know what you want before you walk... More

My waitress was excellent - friendly, efficient, fast. The potato pancake was good, too. Easy to get to from the Best Western.

Ordered a ham & cheese omelet and it was fantastic. Ample portion, fluffy eggs, LOTS of cheese, cooked just right. I got large tomato slices instead of the typical carb choices as a side and added the tomatoes to the omelet. We also ordered a side of bacon: five large slices of thick, delicious meat cooked just right. Service was... More

I eat here twice weekly and have been coming for 20 years. The staff is terrific. The quality of food is good to excellent. Prices are high, but this is about as good as you can get in Salem except for Word of Mouth Bistro.. The atmosphere is terrific -- plenty of room, and you can hear your table mates.... More

We were a party of 30 (family reunion). The restaurant did an outstanding job of accommodating us. The food was excellent.

I have had many of their "special" pancakes, but my favorite are simply the plain ones. Also, their Eggs Benedict are wonderful! Better than anywhere else! I always order both when I go there. I live over 200 miles from the closest franchise, and can only get there every 3 months while on other business. When I make my plans,... More

The dollar-size pancakes are great, but that's all you get. No bacon, no sausage, nothing. Everything is extra. The quality of the food and service are very good, but not sure the price is worth it. You could probably find just as good a breakfast somewhere else a lot cheaper. But, it was close to our hotel, and we didn't... More
