I enjoyed my strawberry pancakes and eggs and bacon. My family of 8 people were quickly seated and we all ordered and were served fairly quickly. The portions were large. The restaurant is quite big too. Lots of seating.

Well worth the wait! We have never had a bad meal here. The staff is always helpful and friendly. The coffee is to die for and the portions are huge. Don’t be discouraged by the wait or line, you will be glad you did.
