I cannot recommend this place enough! It truly had the best stuffed French toast I've ever had. I had the grandpa jo and it was incredible! Churro and cream cheese with strawberries is heaven. The wait and the slightly smaller restaurant are the only small negatives but I would wait outside in a hurricane for that toast eating French toast... More

If you are looking for a unique breakfast menu, this is your spot! Lots of great savory omelette and skillet offerings, but amazing pancake and French toast combinations too. It's a small place so seating can take a while when they're busy, but it's worth the wait! And if you leave hungry, it's definitely your fault! The portions could easily... More

Dang, it was just great, simple and far more food than you (should) can eat. Plan on reviewing the menu for 10 or more minutes - there is just so much to consider. I had the "Tom Cat" omelet - which was a fairly tame selection compared to many of the menu items. I figured sticking with the namesake of... More

If the line tells you anything...it is that people are willing to wait to get in. We did too and all 7 of us were glad we did. Portions are generous and the options are endless. Service was excellent and did a great job of getting us in and served in a timely manner. This was not my first time... More

I've been here many times and it is consistent and always good. I love bringing people here for the first time. They are always blown away by the food that comes out of this hole in the wall restaurant. They have the best breakfast in Berks County! There is alway a wait here but trust me, it's worth it!

Music was way to loud! Could not even have a conversation! I'd say that was my only complaint. The server was very attentive. Food was excellent! We had pancakes and bacon.

Always a long line, but 100% worth the wait! The food and service is incredible! Menu can be overwhelming, so it's worth taking a look online before you go so you have an idea of what you want- on my first visit it took me half an hour to decide! Everything is delicious!

We met some friends here for a late breakfast, and it was packed. It's a small place so a wait on a Saturday was inevitable. We wound up waiting almost an hour, but they even checked in on us when the wait was going to be longer than estimated. And the food was worth it. There is a huge menu,... More

My favorite place for breakfast! Epic food! Fun and funky rock and roll decor! Huge portions! The French toast is out of this world amazing, the breakfast bowls are savory! The pancakes are huge! You never leave hungry! Sometimes, there is a bit of a wait, it's a small intimate atmosphere, but well worth the wait! Kid friendly and clean!... More
