We waited 20 minutes in line until someone asked for our name. About 10 minutes in, we noticed some people walking to the front topic in their name. When my wife went up to ask, they mentioned an online check in system. There are zero advertisements of this online check in system in the entry way where their lines usually... More

We went on a Saturday at 1230 thinking we wouldn't have to wait long. We had to wait for 20 minutes, but the food was so very yummy and the service was fantastic. It was definitely worth the wait. The bacon and the potatoes were our favorites!!

We went for breakfast around 10:30am on a Monday morning. I ordered the French toast and it was absolutely fantastic. This is the third time I have ordered this dish at this restaurant and it never fails. The French toast doesn't have a cinnamon flavor like many French toasts at other places and I prefer no cinnamon on my French... More

First things first the service was not all that great, we waited over 45 minutes for someone to even take our name. We tried to put our name in when we got here and they told us to go wait in the line that someone will come take our name. 45 minutes later were told it'll be another 30 minutes.... More

The pancakes and oven baked omelettes are sooo good. I love the fluffy pancakes and the delicious omelettes (skip the sherry mushroom sauce--not my fave). The food here is super and served w huge servings, so careful on adding sides. I can't eat it all ever... But yum!

My family loved our breakfast. If you get there after 8 on the weekend, be prepared to wait. The Dutch baby is a specialty that takes extra wrong if you order it.

The six of us had a wonderful late morning breakfast. The Apple Pancake was excellent (although it did not look as large as the picture on the menu). The Dutch Pancake, the Western Omelet, and the BLT were all excellent. The two orders of Nutella Crepes were Good...they had very little Nutella. The coffee was only okay. Our server did... More

No matter what day or time of the week, the service and food is always top notch. There is usually a wait for a table between 11:30AM - 12:30 PM, but is well worth it, and the turn over is rapid. When you are a regular customer, either the hostess or server recognizes you and is ready with your choice... More

Love going to breakfast here! I ordered an omelette, which was so big I had a doggy box to take home. My husband had the strawberry crepes which were heavenly! Our friends each had the belgan waffle which they said was quite good!
