Great food, but...

Not the cleanest place. Best pancakes around. Delicious food, staff is very nice. They do a nice job getting people in and out in a timely manner.

Not realizing there were 2 locations, we followed GPS to Peach St location. We ate breakfast here on a late Sat morning. Parking was crowded & we waited about 5 min for a table. The place is large with table, booth or counter seating. Once seated, service was quick & friendly. Coffee cups are small & required waitress attention to... More

I've been here before without incident, but that was in 2012 and 2013. Today's "frittata" serving was very disappointing. Mushy, discolored potatoes with green/red peppers in the same condition indicate old and/or frozen, reused ingredients. The staff was friendly and accommodating, which allows for the extra point. Otherwise this experience would have been 1/5.

I have eaten here several times and never had a bad meal. It's a great place to grab breakfast or a late brunch. Very big food portions. I personally didn't care for the orange juice, but that definitely didn't take away from the food.

This place seemed like a little wore out hole in the wall diner with a decent breakfast, but boy were we wrong! We were seated quickly and got a couple cups of fresh coffee (which was great). Ordered the Italian French toast breakfast for myself, the big breakfast for my wife. Eggs were cooked perfect and hash browns were on... More

The epitome of the diner breakfast joint. The food was on point. I had the pumpkin spice pancakes, which were delicious! My husband had the best chicken-friend steak either of us have ever tasted. Inexpensive and humble with friendly service. Highly recommend.

I had heard great things about The Breakfast place for a couple years. It was always busy, always heard good things about it and was voted Erie's BEST breakfast in 2012. I made a comment about how bad it was on Facebook to a lot of people saying give it another chance its great. My opinion is those people don't... More

All the staff was friendly & made sure we had enough to drink & our meals were ok. And our tummys were... More

Joe Mancuso is the owner & manager. He took time out to talk to me about the restaurant business, which he loves. I had the Eggs Benedict, and I can truthfully say it was both the best ever AND the best value.
