This place gives you a lot of food. Five egg omelets. Who can eat that much?! Comes with potatoes, meat, pancakes, I don't remember, a lot of food. Pancakes are good. Staff is friendly and attentive.

I know it's a house of pancakes but I had French toast and it was excellent. Same with the sausage, coffee, and service.

Service is great. Portions are HUGE. Coffee is wonderful. Owner is very personable. The menu is varied. You could eat here for a month and never eat the same thing. This is our go to place for breakfast.

Yes, they have carry out. Just call ahead and they will have it ready. But I he service is fast there, so unless you're in a real hurry you can probably sit down and eat and be done quickly.
