Just know you will probably have to wait! Maybe 10 minutes, maybe 30. Food is good service is friendly and portions are pretty good sized.

Read all the reviews beforehand and so we wanted to try this place out and had high expectations. The line was long (had to wait 45 minutes). The food portions were large but taste and quality of the Swedish pancakes, hash, and salmon omelette (expected salmon lox but got smoked salmon instead) were just average. Service was good and they... More

I have been there many times and unless you have a large party (you can make reservations with 6 or more) or you go during non peak times, plan to wait a minimum of 45 minutes. Otherwise, the food and service are excellent.

Large portions, delicious food, friendly service... What more could you want? It's always a treat! Expect to wait to get in if you go at peak times. Worth the wait!

I love this place. Just be prepared to wait..but it's so worth it. I've only been here for breakfast but it's always great and the service is excellent. Best biscuits and gravy. The cinnamon roll is huge and be prepared to take some home.

Largest cinnamon roles and best scrambles. Need to get there by 7:30 am on a Sunday or may need to wait an hour for a table. Had lunch there once and loved the cheeseburger. :) It's worth the drive and the wait!

A friend took us here for lunch. They serve breakfast food for lunch. Everything we had was great and the servings were enormous.

I enjoy the cafe . The cinnamon rolls are delicious! Although I prefer the Marrionberry Bran muffins! I am Not a fan of the greasy , too soft , bland ,fried potatoes that comes standard with the mega portion breakfasts. The lunch sandwiches are yummy and the bread is always fresh and when toasted , always toasted perfectly. Every time... More

If you love Chicken Fried Steak don't order it here. They use Thyme in the seasoning and it is very off-putting. I would rather eat a frozen CFS than this. Salt and pepper is all you need!
