I need to begin this review by saying I am picky. I'm not all that fond of pancakes or waffles so I looked at a menu on line. Had my heart set in 2 items only To find they are not served at this location. Settled for a ham and mushroom crepe with potato pancakes. I was raised with real... More

I had the fresh strawberry crepes. They were fantastic. My waitress Candi was very nice and the service was great. This place is usually packed on weekends, but no waiting during the week.

Went and caught breakfast with my son on a Saturday. Restaurant has a good selection and portions are generous. The Dutch baby pancake was really good. The potato pancakes were huge. Prices are a little much for breakfast but you get a lot of food.

We went there today for a late breakfast. We were having it with our friend who had just had a baby, and wanted to visit. They were nice to bring a highchair for a 5 week old????? We ended up moving it out of our way and letting the little lady be in her bin on the table. They gave... More

The workers there have always been so kind since I was little and I'm happy that the newer workers bring the same atmosphere to this establishment.
