Flying Saucer is a great place to go with friends/family for a quick bite of good quality food. Vegan friendly! Great pancakes!

I went there for brunch and and had an omelette. It was a bit massive with 4 eggs but I managed to eat it all. The service was fast and nice. I loved the overall vibe of the place. I would definitely return.

This is the kind of funky, expansive, laid-back type of place that you just don't see in New York, where everything is small, and creative brunch means a quail egg sitting atop three matchsticks of taro root. This is the Midwest, people, and portions are...More

The food was pretty tasty. However, the servers were very stuck up and didn't give good service. They just sat there reading a newspaper! It seems like all the miracle is done in the kitchen without servers making the actual experience enjoyable.
