Super busy on Sundays but worth the wait

We had to order togo since the wait was 2 hours+. Food was very good. Can't go wrong with their pancakes. Come early and put your name down as they text message you when a table is open. This lets you go roam around town until your table is ready.

It was difficult to decide which treat to order, especially after seeing pics of the menu items and peeking at what other patrons had ordered. Everyone in my party of 4 ordered something different and nobody was disappointed! Try a meal with combinations, like 3 different pancakes, and you will love the presentation and the taste. ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ

This place never disappoints for breakfast! But you must get there early if you want to avoid a long wait. (8-830am). Everything I've tried has been fabulous...the pancakes no matter what kind are scrumptious! The last two times I've been I have had the breakfast tacos and the pretzel breakfast sandwich...YUM! Service is super friendly and solid. Give this place... More

The food is fantastic. I tried the my choice of three different pancakes and I could not even figure out for myself which I loved the most. I told the waiter that I had never had a better pancake, it was cooked with the thinnest crisp on the outside and a beautifully fluffy cake center and then the flavors -... More

We were recommended to snooze from a local and were not disappointed! We thankfully beat the Sunday morning rush (still waited about 30 minutes for a table, but not bad with a latte). The service was good and food was delicious. The famous pancakes were pretty good, but a little too much for early in the morning - one pancake... More

We went based on the reviews from trip advisor, ordered french toast and the skillet. Service was good, coffee was excellent, and food was very good, but end of the day just felt like it was a good breakfast and not anything unique. If you are in the area definitely would recommend, but wouldn't go out of your way for... More

I would have been blown away. The menu had great diversity. I always love a creative cocktail menu. My breakfast sandwich sounded really interesting, but was pretty basic. I should have gone with the fancy French toast or pineapple upside down pancakes, I guess. Wish I had time to go back.

Wow, OMG mascarpone french toast and pumpkin caramel pancakes are a great way to start the day! They were both delicious as were the huervos rancheros my friend ordered. We had a delightful waitress (Ariel) who took very good care of us. The only disappointment was the coffee. There was a card on the table touting the Guatemalan beans used... More

Don't miss Snooze when in Hillcrest. Your taste buds will thank you! I ordered the OMG French toast - which lived up to its name. My husband ordered the chilaquiles -- unbelievable! I kept asking for bites of his breakfast but he didn't want to share! Our waitress, Ariel, was cheerful, attentive and speedy. The restaurant is quite large, but... More

Pineapple Upside Down Pancakes, scrambles, hash browns...we all had an excellent breakfast. Atmosphere is great & the food is amazing. We had to wait about 20 minutes for a table, but it was worth it, we went early on a Sunday. By the time we were done eating though, there were a lot of people waiting, but it was about... More
