Cinnamon rolls pancakes! To die for! Superior bacon. Expect a 45 minute wait. With food this good, people are always waiting.

I've been here many times and have never been disappointed. All of the food is wonderful. I especially like the Plate O' Love with prime rib hash and the Creme Brûlée French toast. You have to try it to understand the obsession!! Yes, the wait is almost always long - apparently a lot of us have great taste-just take your... More

Everything about this place is great except for the wait for a table. Good for them but not for me. I have a hard time waiting on the sidewalk by a busy street waiting for a table. The food made it worth it but its a big barrier to me for going back.

Great Food very friendly and good service but since it is so good it is a bit hard to get a seat without a long wait Parking is awful

Food is great once you can get in and get seated. If you have extra hours to wait for a table then this is a great place. You can never just decide to grab a bite there because there is always a line. Which I know means great food but at some point it's just not worth it.

So yummy!! Generous portions! I love the decor inside so eclectic! I love the breakfast wraps and the fruit salad is delicious. The bacon is HUGE!!! This is really the best breakfast I have ever had when it comes to going out. Nothing compares. It's worth waiting for!!

Excellent bloody Mary's. It's always crowded so plan to wait. Well worth it & big portions. Not just the usual French toast!

When we got there (just before lunchtime) we were seated right away- you just never know. Don't be deterred if there's a line, though. I had their tomato soup; it was divine!!!!! The French toast is ridiculously good, too. Adorable atmosphere.

Do you want tasty fresh food that begs you to go back for more?!? THIS is the place!!! If you leave hungry, then it's your fault! Good things come to those who wait and when you sit down to partake of their delicious food you'll realize it was worth the wait!!!
