If you want breakfast or lunch in Minneapolis, this is your place. An established tradition for decades. Recommend using the "No Wait" ahead of time because it is pretty much always a 20 minute wait not matter when you show up. For sure you must experience the hash browns. They also recently added a rib special that redefines breakfast. Start... More

Awesome variety on the menu - CHECK Awesome service - CHECK Awesome ambience - CHECK Tony disappointing thing about visiting is not being able to eat 2 or 3 different plates. I always feel as though I missed out on another dish that I wanted...the next time I visit...it happens ALL OVER AGAIN!!!

We love this place for breakfast. Food is consistently great, service usually very good. Can be noisy with families with children, but that's what it's all about. Very good pancakes and omelettes.

We joined our son here for a late breakfast on a Monday and there was a line to get in! I think that speaks to the popularity of this restaurant. My husband and I both had the Santa Fe omelet with pancakes, one son had a Fajita omelet and our other son had chocolate chip pancakes with hot chocolate. One... More

Read the reviews and decided to have a breakfast here. Very busy place. Came early and was seated almost immediately (despite early hours the place have already been crowded). The food, the service, and the ambience were excellent. The coffee was just OK, but the OJ was freshly squeezed. The crepes were not exactly the french type, but tasty and... More

Great food, good service, long lines. Good place for breakfast if you don't mind waiting an hour or more to eat. Don't miss the pumpkin pancakes and the berry bowl (in season). Average coffee.
