“Best breakfast ever!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

You don't go here for the ambience or the service, but be prepared for the best waffle you've ever had. Find a table, order yourself and pay at the counter, and your food is delivered by a cheery waitstaff. Don't miss the waffles. Even if you're not in the mood for a full-size waffle there are mini versions to get just a tast (well, maybe a little more than one taste) of the larger size. I ordered the bacon waffle and had the tastiest breakfast of my life. One Belgian waffle smothered in bacon pieces and maple syrup. Two eggs over easy and delish hash browns on the side. Breakfast of champions!

“very trendy place but not worth your time”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

Mt wife and I visited this breakfast place a couple of weeks ago.it was a major nightmare from start to finish. First of all there was not nearly enough parking for the amount of people that were there. The system for service was ambiguous at best.the food was the best part of the experience however not worth the price we had to pay. It was a self service coffee bar however there was never enough coffee to supply the people waiting for it.we wanted to try something new and we sure received it.Never again.

“breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

A little hard to find, just look for the crowd. Always very busy. Food worth the wait. A little on the expensive side but good. Closed Mondays.

“very good waffles!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

I tried this for the first time recently and they have wonderful tasting waffles. They use dough, not batter, which gives a different taste and consistency. the toppings are yummy. My only complaint would be that the portion is not very big for the price you are paying.

“Sloppy second rate joint”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

Business propelled by constant ads on TV, should sell itself by word of mouth.
Cash only business, you pay sales tax but do they really report it to Dept Rev Svcs - doubt it
Nothing really special about product
more employees about than customers at Noon hour-bad sign
most reviews say they will not come back
they forgot to even give out syrup-is it that precious?
Expect this place to fold by December when their lease is up.
Sorry, but true.
think this business was more of an experiment than passion for owners who will probably break even before closing since they will not report their real income.
or report the truth, endless losses annually
