I have to say I am not that easily surprised. But this was a very wonderful place to eat...I had the mixed berry waffle with hand made whipped cream. Excellent experience and made just right. Coffee and even the bacon are a wonderful surprise. I will be going back for more.

The food is amazing!!! The has browns are to die over. But the wait on a weekend morning is for the birds. I wish they were open for dinner because I could eat pancakes all day!

Nancy was very happy with her four egg Mediterranean Omelet with Kalamata olives, sun-dried tomatoes, spinach, onion, and feta cheese. I was pleased with my hash browns and eggs. They describe their hash browns as, “Roesti Swiss style hash browns – thick hash browns, crispy on the outside, light and buttery inside, with a hint of onion.” That description was... More

Had a great breakfast. The hash browns are delish and the pancake and syrup mix is fantastic. We went on a Sunday and there was a wait but we would do it again for the food that was served.

I have been bragging about the raspberry French toast for days! Not a cheep place as traditional sides of eggs, bacon and potatoes all cost extra. Waitress not too friendly but the food is why I eat our

Edina's arcane and peculiar liquor laws have discouraged fine dining and hotels with restaurants from that city for years, so in some cases it is not surprising that this restaurant has been a long time favorite of the town since 1953. But it is hardly number one; look at the choices of contemporary and imaginative restaurants that follow. I have... More

By far, the best breakfast place. Portions are huge so one breakfast omelet could easily feed one couple, unless you're like a construction guy that burns thousands of calories a day. I won't have to eat for 12 hours now. Their omelets are so fluffy and delicious and they come with 3 pancakes. I substituted them for potato pancakes, my... More

This is a good place to go for breakfast. Not the best option. Be prepared to wait for a table (most of the time) and be prepared to wait a while for your meal too. The items I've had are tasty, but.... I hate waiting for breakfast food. Also, they are very pricy.... Which again, I'm not a fan of.... More
