The food was very good, but not as good as past visits. The waiter was good. The price was pretty steep. Somehow some of the past magic was gone. I will still be going back.

I got chocolate chip pancakes, they were not fluffy at all. My husband got cherry crepes that we're too sweet. The coffee was ok but slow on refills.

A lot of hype not delivered upon. Servers are friendly, the place is generally clean. Prices a bit on high side for what you get. Pancakes are ok, but super small and thin. The bacon is great, although for what youngest for a side order of bacon you could almost buy a full Brekkie elsewhere. Family friendly, but no out... More

“Thank you for the feedback Tony and Suz. Our ‘pancakes that melt in your mouth’ are prepared and aged with a sour starter … a technique used (to minimize use of salts and sodas) amongst the most expert of traditional bakers. The 4”sizes are best for proper and thorough cooking also allowing ‘ease of turn’ – avoiding spills and splashes.... More

This place has been here for years, and it still delights. The pancakes, omelets, french toast, and other breakfast items are delicious and well-prepared. Try the flapjacks - yum! Service is good, and the prices are reasonable. Crowds abound on weekends. Be aware that they do not accept AMEX cards, which is a bit of an inconvenience.

Our revisit was after an almost two years of passing by the place. While many will find a wait time, if you go just at the right time especially during week days there is no wait. The service was very good and the pancakes are among the best in Dallas. There is a variety of toppings you can order as... More

This restaurant has the BEST pancakes (& this is coming from someone that would rather have waffles-lol!) but all of the food was good and the staff made it better! We went in the afternoon, closer to 2 and they close at 2:30...I was expecting the service not to be that great because of that but they went above and... More

We went to lunch here and one of our party had some cater questions for them as well. The food is excellent. Scrambled eggs were cook properly and were delicious, the bacon is fantastic! Coffee was great, service was great and they worked with my friend to work out a good catering plan and price. My only thing keeping it... More

There was a 25 minute wait on a Saturday morning. It must be great! Wrong! The seating was a little crowded and there were four empty tables close to us, so why the wait? The service was excellent! The food was all small portions, though we didn't order the small portion breakfast. The scrambled eggs looked more like one than... More

A bunch of us get together for breakfast once a month. The food is good and they manage to have all 12 meals ready (and still piping hot!) at the same time. Even when you order the apple pancake that takes longer.

The bacon is marvelous, granted, but it doesn't quite make up for the price of the meal, the portion size of the pancakes, and the slow tempo of service. The coffee was rich and full-bodied -- just wished they had come by to warm it up a little more often. The pancakes were small and cool, not hot. No hashbrowns... More
