Generous food portions. Two pancakes were great plenty. Eggs and grits were well worth the short drive. Parking was challenging during their busy morning rush. Leave yourself extra time to park, sip coffee and enjoy.

This place has been around a while. It has a huge pancake. Their breakfast is good. Bring cash. Credit cards are not accepted. Plan For a 20-30 minute wait most mornings. It is worth the wait. At least occasionally!

Excellent breakfast choices that are very reasonably priced and the biggest pancakes you’ve ever seen. You can get a 2 stack of pancakes for like $5 and feed 3-4 people. No joke. It’s incredible value. Everything is priced reasonably but the pancakes are excellent!
