First, the servings were HUGE. The ham and cheese omelette was a full sized meal even before eating the pancakes that come with it. It was nice to have the option of doing half sized orders for our daughter. The eggs benidict was delicious! One of the best hollandaise sauces I've had.

The is a down home diner (large space ) with a very comfortable feeling. It almost feels like you took a step back in time .... The food is great and the servers are quick and kind. Be prepared to be full when you leave , the portion and the food quality is too tough not to fill up on.... More

Located next to the Phoenix Inn along Franklin Blvd., this long-time Eugene institution is a winner. Friendly service and hearty breakfast meals that can't be beat make this place a winner. Omelets or pancakes, you can't go wrong here.

Was not disappointed. Bacon waffle was light and fluffy, lots of fresh bacon bits; corned beef and potato pancakes were wonderful.

If you have more than 2 in your party it might be a little bit of a wait, but it is definitely worth it! Best French toast ever!! Very nice and cute environment on the inside too. Great servers as well :)

It's worth getting up EXTRA EARLY on a weekend, if it means getting a table at this little gem that serves PERFECTLY prepared breakfast fare (BEST BACON EVER!) in a homey, impeccably clean, sunny, and homey restaurant. This classic venue is staffed by lovely, helpful, knowledgeable, and service-oriented staff. WHAT A PLEASURE to rediscover this again after many years!

Tried this place on our last morning while visiting Oregon and wish we would of eaten here every morning we were there! As you can see in the picture the food was served hot and fresh and delicious. It was a very busy morning so it took a bit to get our food but the service and coffee were excellent... More

I probably have eaten here 40 times in the last year. Can't beat the friendly service. Large bacon cooked the way you like, I like crispy. I love scrambled eggs, theirs are fluffy and when I have 2 eggs it looks like 3. 49ers pancakes fill the large plate. It's all good.

Great service, fresh and tasty big portions. Have been to several locations and so far this has been the best. Cream and jelly are served in individual small pitcher and ramekins not in sealed plastic containers. Enjoyed the ham and Tillamook omelette.

Visiting from Iowa and NY and we had a great brunch with relatives who live in Eugene and chose the place. Will return next time we are in Oregon for sure. Excellent service as well.
