Oh my goodness! I went here with a friend and it is hands down the best breakfast I have ever had! There are so many amazing choices it was hard to choose just one. Cannot wait to go back!

I think it is a fantastic idea to not be able to change the menu, you get to try new things and things you thought would not go together, you will be pleasantly surprised!! I loved everything about my experience, even from the Uno game I was playing. Food is great and well worth it. Keep up the good job!!

If you are in the area and have time to wait in line, this place is worth the wait. The menu is extensive with some quirky but really good combinations for breakfast. They mix things together with omelets that you would have never thought of. The " Buddy Holly" Omelete has french fries inside and a southwest dressing to put... More

Loved the variety of the menu. Over 50 different types of pancakes. Service was great. Get there early or you will wait for a table.

I guess all the hoopla is about the very large portions (plate size pancakes and if you order eggs you get 4 large ones). But - you can't special order a thing - nothing! Not even if you want your potatoes cooked well! I hate undercooked hard potatoes. I like them burnt! But you can't have it your way -... More

What a unique experience. The menu goes on and on and the atmosphere is eclectic and fun. My husband and I were in town overnight for a show in Reading and wanted to try someplace different for breakfast before heading home. We are so glad we found this place. He had the Cat Scratch Fever and I had the Amish... More

My daughter and I recently went for breakfast at the Tomcat. The restaurant is decorated in a blues type of theme throughout with cool blues music streaming in the background. I had the "Hank's Cajun Girl" & my daughter had the "Long Tall Sally". My dish kicked up the palette with a Jalapeño pepper cornbread smothered in a brown bacon... More

My Sister suggested this place. We were in Reading for a visit and decided to give Tomcat a try. We had a little trouble paring because there was road construction going on. We finally found a space right out front. It was early on a weekday so we were able to get a table right away. Thank goodness we looked... More
