Maybe because I'm not a breakfast person but I don't understand why you would 45 minutes of more for a loud, poorly wait staffed restaurant. Loud, food is uber salty (and I believe salt is a food product not a condiment therefore if I say it's salty it is really salty). Unimpressed. Even my breakfast eating 16 year gives it... More

Having been forewarned about the wait, we went prepared. Waited about 15 minutes and had the most fabulous breakfast of a five day trip. Eggs Benedict choices galore and, having a hard time deciding, the waiter told me I could order one of each which worked out beautifully! It's not stated on the menu which is why I've mentioned here.... More

I love Snooze! We usually order a flight of pancakes to share, the upside down pineapple one is my favorite, but honestly they are all delicious.

We had to wait for about half an hour but food was good and service excellent. They offer loads of variety in pancakes.

This is officially my kids and my favorite place to have breakfast!! The caramel apple pancakes are the best!!!! Pineapple upside down pancakes are also delicious. Get there early or you will have a long wait to get seated.

I couldn't decide on which benedicts to order, so the boyfriend and i got 4 different kind to share, they were extremely delicious.. Definitely will be back, if only the line isn't an hour... More

We enjoyed breakfast here around 8 am on a Friday. No line, got a great spot outside. Good coffee, great service, great food. I had the breakfast tacos - great flavors. My partner had the huevos rancheros and was very happy with his dish. I like the atmosphere - it's very open and light with a high ceiling that lends... More

I love the concept of a pancake flight. I'm not as adventurous as I thought I was though because the selections are pretty extravagant. Overall, I thought the pancakes were pretty good but not the best I've ever had and relatively pricey since they don't come with anything extra like eggs or breakfast meats. The service was great at the... More
