Came for breakfast worried it would take too long to wait. 10:00 am on a Sunday morning had a 10 minute wait. They gave out free mimosa's while we waited. Excellent food, fast service, and worth a 10 minute wait plus more. My kids loved it. Great pancakes!

Found this place on tripadvisor and it lived up to the reviews. Huge menu and a make your own omelet with up to five choices of ingredients. A little pricey for breakfast but huge portions. Could have probably split in two.

No wait on the weekdays but will get packed on the weekends. Good quality food and service. Large portions and willingness to accommodate change. Something for everyone. Kid friendly.

On Monday around 9:30am no wait. Quick service. Our server was Johanna was very attentive. Large portion on eggs, sausage patty, hash browns and toast. I had Belgium Waffle was very good with fruit bananas, strawberries and blueberries. In a shopping center i.e. Strip mall. Easy to find on Washington visible from street. All the food from kitchen looked good.... More

They serve mimosas while you wait. Food is great we came back here twice for breakfast. Would definitely recommend eating here. Kids loved the French toast!

I like to sleep late when on vacation, so by the time my wife and I rolled out of bed and got ready to go out to breakfast, it was already 10:30 am. So I found nearby Louise's Pantry on TripAdvisor. I had the blueberry pancakes (with real blueberries) along with two eggs over easy, and my wife had the... More

I love Louise's Pantry. They have great food that is clean, quality and tasty. I cannot say enough for this place except go during the off season or very early in the day because they are always busy during peak hours. They are only open for breakfast and lunch. They are hidden behind a frontage road so don't give up... More

Hat is why it is always crowded and a wait to get a table but oh so worth it. While you wait outside, they offer mimosas on Sunday mornings free....when does that happen anymore?!?! The wait goes pretty quickly for this small place. Every item on the menu is fabulous. The homemade jams are to die for. The eggs Benedict... More
