Really large portions, many options for the kiddos. Pancakes were delicious! We went really early on Sunday per my sister's recommendation (she lives in the area) as it gets really busy. Great option if you're in the area, but I wouldn't make a special trip for it.

Wonderful place for breakfast 🍳 try the oatmeal. We always share the omelet pancakes and a side order of bacon.

The pancakes were huge, but consistently good!!! We went looking for the slices of kosher salami, and they had them. Some places only have the bits of salami in the eggs and not a la carte, but this one does. I ordered a second order since it is rare to find the salami by itself. The pancakes are wonderful, but...

This was a perfect breakfast after thanksgiving. No cooking and the food was good. The German pancake was oven baked and tasty. Cramped and crispy bacon hit the spot and the coffee cups were kept full. The place is not suitable for quiet conversation but if you're a pancake lover this is the place

We come here quite often for breakfast. I especially like the coconut pancakes, the fresh fruit crepes and the Eggs Benedict. The wait is definitely worth the it - I recommend to get there early.

If you can eat breakfast all times of the day then this restaurant is a MUST. The menu is vast enough to where anyone can find something they love to eat. The portions are generous, the food is fresh & flavorful, and the service impeccable! I try to dine in at least twice a month.

Best to be hungry when you arrive here. The breakfast portions are huge. The restaurant was full. Very lively. The staffed seemed a bit stressed. From eggs over easy to huge pancakes the menu satisfies everyone's breakfast desires. Food is served warm / a bit of a wait though Hope you enjoy!!
