Very crowded which is a good sing. Coffee was fresh and hot. Was taken aback by the price of the ham-i read a review previously and thought it had to be a typo...it's not. My husband had the ham and cheese omelet. I tried a bite of the ham, it was very good. My buckwheat pancakes were great! Loved the... More

My wife and I had breakfast there the first morning of our stay, and kept on going back the food was spot on. We had a wonderful experience visiting with the staff. They were friendly and very helpful.

The food was great, the staff was friendly, and the restaurant was cozy and clean. My husband loved the locally-made sausage he ordered with his pancakes. I had eggs, cooked perfectly.

We had a fabulous breakfast at The Pancake Shop. The pancakes were moist and fluffy - the best I've ever had. I also ordered a side of bacon. It was sliced thin and perfectly cooked without being greasy. The service was outstanding and very friendly. Pricing is above average but was well worth it to me.

Loved this place. The blueberry pancakes are just like my mother used to make for me growing up. We ate here twice.
