They make the best apple pancakes and whenever I have a craving for one, this is the place I go. They are absolutely delicious! Service has always been good and food has always arrived hot. The only drawback to this particular location is that the restroom is not located in the restaurant, but a little ways down into the mall... More

I've frequented this restaurant several times, most times because there was no other option. We've had good and bad experiences. This restaurant has a great menu with reasonable prices. The staff is good once you get a table, it seems very unorganized with mixed messages from different staff members. The sign tells you to Wait to be Seated, yet the... More

Went for breakfast with daughter and wife. Wife and I split a full size apple pancake. I would call it a "Dutch Baby" but it was full grown! It was plenty, with a side of Potatos for the both of us. While the coffee is a bit anemic, even for commercial restaurant stuff, the food was very good. Service was... More

Decor a bit tired. Coffee strong but cream and milk came in tiny throw-away portion containers; very irresponsible in terms of environmental impact. Omelette had lots of fillings; very tasty. Average pancakes. Service was absolutely excellent. Really friendly and patient. We had a large group of undetermined size and twice another couple of people showed up. Our waitress patiently rearranged... More

Went here for breakfast while at a conference. Laid back with a very extensive menu. Coffee was good as were the cheese blintzes. Quick service.

If you are looking for your basic bacon & eggs/pancake breakfast, this is it. No frills, no atmosphere, but a good breakfast. Long line ups to get in on wknds though, but not much else around like it.

We ate here for breakfast when it was not very full. The service was slow. I had to ask for more water and for more coffee. I asked for extra salsa and it never came. The bill didn't come and we finally went up to the cash register. The food was reasonably good. My husband raved about how good the... More

I really wanted to come here again. Last year I stopped in with friends and had the Belgium banana split waffle. I dragged my friends back again for another one. Three of us had waffles and one of us tried the eggs. We all enjoyed our meals. It was a great way to end our day at The Forks.

Went with my wife, daughter-in-law and two grandchildren. It took a very long time for our order to be taken. It took even longer for our food to come to the table. After waiting so long the food was cool and almost inedible. To add insult to injury we were seated under ducting which was dripping because of condensation unto... More
