We had a late breakfast here early April on a Tuesday. The wait was less than 1/2 hour which was shorter than I thought it might be. If you do have to wait you can see the visitor center and look at some of the history of the mill and the area. Their pancakes are not my favorite. I do not particularly like the taste of the batter on the regular pancakes. The whole grain cakes tasted better to me. Our waitress forgot the meat we had ordered and was gone for a long time. She finally came back and we reminded her. She did bring it but it had been sitting for a while because it was mostly cold. I think the novelty of eating here with friends or family and cooking your own cakes at the table is the main draw of this restaurant. I absolutely LOVE this park and the massive Live Oak Trees that cover the area. Don't forget to walk back on the trail a short distance and visit the grand old Cypress Tree that survived the loggers so many years ago. Deleon Spring is a great place to visit so put it on your list of things to do in Central Florida.
