We went on a Sunday Morning and arrived at about 10:15. We waited about 30 minutes but it was well worth it. The pancakes were some of the best I've ever had! Well worth the visit and our waitress was wonderful!

I've been coming here since I was a kid in the 50's. Great breakfast especially the omelettes and pancakes. Come early because they can get crowded.

If you are a pancake lover, you have to go to the Pancake Pantry, and enjoy the best pancakes in Music City. Plan to wait awhile but it's worth the wait.

As a breakfast snob, I was super excited to come here and try the Santa Fe Pancakes. They lived up to their expectations. The wait was only 15 minutes (which was not bad at all) and was well worth it. These flapjacks are also very filling, I could barely finish my plate!

First things first, you WILL wait in line to get in BUT.... it is TOTALLY worth it. Don't let that scare you too much though because the lines really does move quickly. Order the Cooks Medley and/or the sweet potato pancakes with cinnamon syrup. I live in Nashville and have family that gets mad at me when I come back... More
