The food at Heidi's is overpriced and not anything to be excited about. I would not go back. It used to be better years ago.

We still take a lot of pride in the food and service we prepare here, and many of us have worked together for a couple of decades (or more). Please, give us another chance to show that we still "got it". Until then, Don R.,... More

Classic family owned pancake house. It's a warm chalet style restaurant with Swiss themed decor. There guest wifi was useful as I was able to download some movies for our road trip, while we enjoyed breakfast. Service was quick and helpful throughout our visit. I can't compliment their crepes enough. An all around nicely run restaurant.

The decor of this eating establishment as like going to a Holland cottage. I loved it! But even better was the taste of the food and the nice servers who work there. I had the dish called Carol's which consisted of an omelet of 3 eggs with mushrooms and bacon topped with slices of avocados and lots of melted monterrey... More

Good food, good service, reasonable prices. Try the buckwheat pancakes. The coffee is just okay. The blue berries on the blue berry pancakes for kids are just pie filling.
