Best breakfast we have had on our AR vacation. Great specials & pancakes. The sausage & egg scramble and blueberry pancakes were awesome. The staff were friendly and excellent. We ate there twice and will again in future trips.

You can enjoy a great breakfast at a Hot Springs landmark and then go next door to the Savory Pantry and buy some gourmet food to take home!
