The food was freshly cooked. The service was great. Came out in good time and kept my cup of joe full. I didn’t feel rushed either. I wanna come back and get some topped pani-cakes or a waffle……maybe some French toast.

Just go there! It's well worth the wait. Pancakes are awesome, the smothered hash browns are to kill for and the whole atmosphere is wonderful. Best breakfast/brunch place I've been in a while.

Cafeteria style dining. LONG lines after 9:00 am. If you go when they open, there are no lines at all. Food was average. I don't think it is worth sitting in a line for an hour for breakfast. Staff is very helpful.

This is cafeteria style, stand in line, order, drinks, etc. Don't fret, the line moves fast and the folks have everything under control. Wait staff was fine. The food was good, not outstanding. Hubby and I spent about $30 for two breakfasts, juice and coffee....More

Fast, Fun Breakfast. It will be busy but the line moves quick. Food is good, quick, great value and the place is very well run. 25+ years it has been this way.

The restaurant serves food cafeteria style: you grab a tray, stand in line, review the menu on the wall, choose sides and drinks as you like, place your order/pay, find a table and wait for your food to be served. The service was pretty quick,...More

Thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant restaurant, and we appreciate your patronage. Just a quick note, we of course serve pancake syrup. There is a glass dispenser on every table. Perhaps a fresh one did not make it to your table...More
