I hear a lot of people whining about wait times, cold, blah blah blah. Apparently they've never been to a restaurant somewhere where it's busy. It's very simple, if you wait until 10 to have breakfast, you will have a long wait. If you get there, say, 30 minutes after the place opens, you will be seated and on your... More

Our experience was awful: *The restaurant was so cold we needed to wear our jackets the entire time. *We waited an hour for our food to arrive. *When it came, my BLT was so cold it seemed like they got it out of the refrigerator. *After telling the server it was really cold, she said that's how itt is served--really???...

I ended up having to pay full price for a meal I didn't even eat. I ordered the Sweet Potato Hash Special. It's supposed to be topped with two over easy eggs; but, when it came out, over 35 minutes after we ordered, the eggs were so overcooked I could barely eat them. After my first bite, I asked the...

Make sure you give yourself at least 2 hours for this restaurant if you eat here on a weekend. The food was the best I have ever seen and eaten for breakfast at any restaurant. Everything on the menu was good. There was no skimping on ingredients and I will certainly eat here again the next chance I get. The... More

Food was excellent. Location was unique. Be aware that coffee refills were extra. Difficult time deciding what to order. Would recommend for a leisurely meal with friends.

My husband and I stopped here, based on Trip Advisor, for a late breakfast while traveling. It was well worth the 10 minute ride off of the main highway. I decided to take a chance and had the Buckwheat Ham Crepe and my husband had his usual eggs, bacon toast and hash browns. Everything was excellent, even the coffee! Worth... More

Great great food, very tasty ! Very friendly staff and good service. Coffee is a little strong and music was a little depressing (and loud) for brunch.

Everything I have ever eaten his is fantastic! They have the most unique omelet combinations, and the servings are huge! The Southwest and the Peppered Bacon are my favorites. They have huge and tasty pancakes too! This is the beast breakfast place in Eau Claire, in my opinion!

I've been here many times and I've have mixed feelings. When I come here for strawberry nutella crepes, they are absolutely amazing and delicious. When I come here for eggs, they're not the best. If I'm going to get eggs, I usually get the Real Housewives of E.C. omelette, which is supposed to be healthy. There is a ridiculous amount... More

We saw a review of this restaurant and had to try it based on the reviews of the nutella crepe. They absolutely did not disappoint!!! The crepe was awesome - my daughter loved it. I had the stuffed french toast...also super yuumy! We enjoyed it so much we went back on our second morning to do it all over again!... More
