I ordered the oatmeal with apples and Carmelized brown suger. It was delicious. My husband ordered eggs and bacon. The hash browns were kind of dry and probably not fresh. staff is very friendly. We would definitely come back to this place

Our group of six ate there for breakfast due to TripAdvisor's reviews. The place was packed! We were originally told that we will be seated in 15-20 minutes. The lady definitely over delivered as we were seated in less than 5 minutes! Huge selection with reasonable prices! We will definitely eat there again when we are in town! It's a... More

We ate at the rise and dine restaurant for breakfast on the weekend recently. There was not much of a wait, and there was plenty of parking available in their lot. The food was very good. My brother is allergic to gluten and they advertise gluten-free pancakes. He ordered them and the waitress brought "healthy" pancakes. She insisted these pancakes... More

Their minced ham and eggs is my fav. you have the choice of potatoes or fruit and toast or pancakes. My husband perferes the skillets which they have a full array of. They... More

We wanted a restaurant near the tollway, to have a late-morning meal with some out of town guests on Father's Day. Realizing it might be busy, we called about 2 weeks in advance, to make reservations. The owner said that he would only take reservations for groups of 5 or more. Since we'd only have 4 people, he said that... More

You must try this breakfast spot. If you go, you'll fall in love. Looks on the outside are deceiving. It's very vibrant, cozy, and family oriented. Super busy spot though- Expect to wait in line. The food is always on point and service is also great. Omlettes are amazing here.

My wife and I go there for breakfast once a week. Creatures of habit we always order the same items for breakfast. All the staff know what we will order and start bringing the carafe of decaf and the carafe of regular coffee as soon as we sit down. The breakfasts are great and I am an afficionado of hash...

Upon entering restaurant, I almost left because of unpleasant smell. Once I was seated by nice owner, I didn't feel as if restaurant was spotlessly clean, but then thought to give it a chance as it is like a greasy spoon joint. Best bacon, best eggs, best French toast I've had in a long time!
