Good food, quick service, and nice staff means I will definitely return! You may have to wait a bit but the line moves quickly and they can seat more than you think.

I was a little skeptical when I walked in. You order at a food line with a lot on the menu. When they brought it to the table I was at ease. Fresh coffee and a wonderful meal. The pancakes are to die for. We will be back.

This is one of the best restaurants for breakfast that I've ever visited. There was a decent sized line to get in but it moves quickly. Once inside, you grab a tray and there are a few items on the bar (muffins, cereal, fresh fruit) that you can choose from and then you choose your drink. You order your meal... More

Enjoyed tasty pancakes, eggs, sausage and fresh strawberries. Fair pricing. Crowd lines up as morning grows later. Attentive service. Real maple syrup is available!

we came here for breakfast while visiting the Outer Banks. The staff was friendly, the service was quick and the food was delicious. You order in a cafeteria-style line, then pay, and they bring the food to your table. The decor is also great with family photos up and quotes strategically around the walls.

Had a nice breakfast. Western omelette with egg whites excellent. My wife liked the pancakes and she is quite particular about her pancakes. Employees very friendly and service excellent. Our first time in the area. Sister-in-law took us there and she has been several times. Would definitely go again. Was surprised at how quickly we were served. They definitely have... More
