“Friendliest place in town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

We are at George's every Sunday morning and at least once or twice during the week. The owner will make sure you are happy with your meal, even design your omelet to order.Breakfasts tend to run on the large side but you can always take home the leftovers for lunch later. There may be a little wait on Sunday mornings but that just confirms that people are willing to wait for the best.

“Great Atmosphere, Huge Portions, Affordable Prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

This is our "go to " spot for breakfast on Saturday mornings. You must bring an apetite though because no matter what you order, the portions will be huge and the quality excellent. We find the short stack of pancakes delicious but impossible to finish. The same for the omeletes. The meals are quickly delivered, there's no hold up getting them from the open kitchen to your table.

The wait staff are very attentive, and there are usually plenty of them on hand. You can expect the place to be quite busy but the turnover is quick enough that you won't be waiting long.

They also have a selection of fresh baked breads for sale.

Obviously I highly recommend George's.
