My wife and I have been to several local breakfast restaurants. This by far exceeds all others for variety, service, and very fluffy large egg omelets. My wife had a western omelet and took half of it home. Mine was a make your own with 4 ingredients chosen out of 15+ options. You don't have to... read more

We have been going to this restaurant for years. We know the owners as our son use to play baseball with their son and their kindness and hospitality are transcended through their employees. Our favorites are the pancakes, quiche and the omelets. You would be hard pressed to find a fluffier and tastier omelet. My personal favorite is the spinach... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my meal. Portions are HUGE so although the prices are high, you can save by sharing plates. The oven baked omelets are amazing. I had never eaten such fluffy and steaming hot eggs before. Pancakes are perfect. Our family makes buttermilk pancakes from scratch and these taste just like them.

I got the oven pancakes and my wife got eggs and potatoes. The oven pancakes are worth visiting again for, but the other stuff (potatoes, eggs, coffee) were very average. The service was all right, but not great.

I agree with others...Debbie the manager is totally rude! Don't understand why she keeps her job! Please get rid of her...she is tarnishing the place!

This place might be busy and the wait a little long-but it is worth it as the amount and types of foods, accompaniments and also the service is excellent. They will change up your order as requested and make the best possible experience for you.

I love this place. I highly recommend their banana crêpe! Service is great. The only thing is that it can get a bit loud in there.
