The food is consistently good. Always a wait, even during the week. Fast, friendly service. Always leave full.

This is one of the best breakfast places in Brookfield, Wisconsin. The food is unique and great! The only problem is the long line during the weekend.

I can't even count the number of times I've driven past this place and thought "We've got to try that some time", but man am I kicking myself for not doing it sooner! Staff was extremely friendly, food was excellent and service was quick. Prices may seem a touch higher than average, but you'll get a lot of food for... More

Simply outstanding. Great menu, only exceeded by great tasting food. Excellent service. Very good coffee. Busy on weekend, but well worth the wait. Ample free parking.

Love the food here and the menu has a nice variety of choices. The quantities are so generous. You might want to avoid the busiest times over the brunch hour or you'll have a long wait. But another indication of how good it is! If you have to wait, it's worth it!

Excellent omelets, excellent pancakes and waffles. Great coffee, great service. Be prepared to wait on busy days. It's worth the wait.

Food is average/good but the downside is the noise. You can barely hear yourself think in this place. I have tried it three times now and it is the same every time. Doubt I will go back again as I prefer a relaxed place to eat and this place is just too noisy and too rushed for my tastes. If... More

This was a decent breakfast, not the best I've ever had but solid. I had the apple pancake, which is a highlighted item on the menu. It was good, but more of a bread pudding consistency than a pancake. The other people I was with also enjoyed their meals, eggs benedict, hashbrowns, bacon etc. We waited 35 minutes for a... More

A delightful location for breakfast or lunch (only) in the active shopping/hotel area of Brookfield. Excellent pancakes and eggs were served by a very pleasant and efficient staff. Despite our showing up near closing time, they were eager to please and offer insights about the area.

I went with a co-worker and two of my sisters after trying on bridesmaids dresses and the service is pretty good even though our waiter was new he was very eager to assist us and find out answers to questions he didn't know. Now the coffee was a little too strong for my liking and I love eggs benedict but... More
