Nothing good to say here. Had eggs benedict, hollandaise sauce was tasteless. Came with a side of potato pancakes that tasted of bad grease. Coffee only comes with coffee mate. This isn’t even milk. Anyplace that serves coffeemate is only a 1 star establishment. Just...More

We did not have a good experience here. We went about noon on a Saturday, not many customers there. I can eat almost anything, but the food there was not good. Left with a very bad impression.

Great food! Omelet and pancakes were out of this world. Fluffiest omelet I've ever had. HUGE portions. Can't go wrong with breakfast here. Yummy!

It should be Abuelas Pancake House because the little Latina grandmothers there treat you like family. The food is plentiful and delicious, too.

It’s not bad but not great. Menu is ample and if you wanna a cheap average breakfast it’ll be right up your alley. FYI menu pricing is for 6 pancakes. 3 was plenty for me.
