Not a big fan of pancakes, but this makes homemade buttermilk pancakes. They also make a cinnamon pancake that is out of this world.

This place has good service & food, thus their popularity has exploded, causing far too long a wait to get in. A larger location, with sufficient tables would be great & appreciated!! Also, the waiting area is far too small. Not great to stand out in the cold while waiting for a table😁

Wow, this place was really good. The wait was really long - an hour for a party of 7, but oh so worth it. The portions are huge!!! The pancakes are gigantic and fluffy and there are lots of interesting menu options to choose from. Highly recommend a visit to this restaurant. PS, They have gluten free pancakes available which...

I ordered the Nonna omelette which was very good as were the hash browns. I decided to have one pancake instead of the customary toast. The pancake was the size of a dinner plate and was no ordinary pancake. They have special pancakes but this was just one of their regular buttermilk pancakes and it was delicious.....best pancake I've ever... More

I've been a patron since they first opened and were within walking distance of my house. When I looked at the menu for the first time, I thought their prices were high. But after my first meal I realized, the quality and quantity were well worth the extra cost. Then they moved across town to their present location and the... More

We have been loyal customers since they opened. Jeff is a hands on owner and his staff are always friendly. Now let's talk about the food! Great selection of pancakes, omelets and other breakfast foods. They also serve a mean lunch, but I've never gotten through the pancake menu. They are always busy. You can call ahead and get on...

Long wait for cramped table, slow service. Food decent, but not too thrilled with prices for pancakes, eggs, bacon, and potatoes. Friendly staff, but won't be going back.

This place was amazing!! I enjoyed all of the many different types of pancakes you could get. I opted for the buttermilk pancake with fresh strawberries and lemon syrup. It was delicious. My boyfriend tried the banana nut French Toast...wow!!! Everything was great!! I had a moment to talk to the owner of the restaurant who was quite friendly. He... More
