Great pancakes!

This place has very good food at a very reasonable price. Great pancakes as well as other breakfast items. Have gone her many times. Sunday mornings usually have a longer wait time.

Not only is the food second to none, but the service makes you feel like you are a guest in someone's house. Very kind, very friendly, very helpful. Hands down, the best breakfast spot in the Milwaukee area.

We tried to call to get reservations for a Saturday morning breakfast meeting. We were notified that they didn't take reservations but would put our name on the waiting list if we called withing 30 minutes of arrival, which we did.

This was one of my top 10 breakfast places that I've ever eaten at. Be prepared to WAIT 30min or more but it's so worth it! Pancakes, sausage, bacon, eggs, French toast....it was all wonderful!

They have fantastic omelets. We can always split one and the veggie with Swiss cheese is our favorite. Their Eggs Benedict are fantastic and we are pretty picky about this dish. Coffee is superb and with fresh juices you just can't go wrong. Great kids choices too.

I had the Dutch Baby baked pancake... The first I have had in a couple of years and it is just as good as I have had before. Served with lemon, a bit of whipped butter and some powdered sugar, it was great. This appears to be a busy place and is more then worth a 30 minute wait..

One of our two favorite places for breakfast in Brookfield. Expect a line, so come early enough - there is no reserving a table.
