Had the cinnamon roll French toast combo, and every part of the meal was delicious. Friendly staff, great service!

Man, I didn't know what I was in for when I went here. I got a Groupon for this place and it looked like a divey hole-in-the-wall place so I was really excited to go. Once we got there we realized it's basically a lower-class...IHOP. It has the most basic breakfast options, nothing that is a specialty or that can't be easily made at home. The only thing that was nice (but I'm not sure if it's actually a good thing) is that the food came out super fast, like 5 minutes after we ordered it. Which seems like something we should be concerned about, especially since the taste was... Well just not there. I don't like leaving bad reviews but I have to be honest to warn people to stay away or encourage the management to do better. But the food was really bad. The apples in the apple cinnamon french toast were still hard from being fresh out of a can, the eggs benedict sauce had just about no flavor to it, and neither did anything else. none of the elements seemed to have any effort put in that I could give props to. Sorry but this place would really have to turn itself around for me to want to come back.More

This took over from a IHOP which is a great improvement overall. The service was excellent and the staffing to customer ratio is one of the highest I've seen. The food is well prepared and portions extremely generous. We will certainly return to try other...items on the menu. Incidentally they leave you with a full carafe of coffee on the table.More
