Very pretentious and ill mannered staff. Food was crap and I would never go back, ever. Ordered the eggs Benedict and it did not taste at all right as they use all wrong ingredients. Total crap.More

We had The Cube, Apple Pancakes, and waffles and they were all excellent. Do not miss out on The Cube - I have never tasted anything close to this in my entire life.

Mix of awesome Mexican and American breakfast fare. My favorite is the Mediterranean avocado toast. My family likes to leave the make-you own pancakes to the end as a breakfast-desert treat. The banana bread batter is delicious.

Take advantage of the waitlist feature via the Yelp app, if you can. It's such a handy plus, and I wish all restaurants offered this option. When I joined the waitlist, we were 22nd in line, with a wait time of almost 60 minutes. We...were given a recommended check-in window, then the app alerted me to the fact that the list was moving quicker than anticipated, so we knew to head out earlier than planned. I liked the restaurant's space - open and bright, with a fun and funky vibe (lots of pink and purple spatulas hanging from ceilings, decorating the walls, etc.) Our waiter was friendly and attentive, even with the large group that was seated shortly after us. I'm not a fan of pancakes, and the idea of paying to cook my own pancakes did not appeal to me, so I decided to try the Wilbur Benedict (cheese biscuits with sautéed spinach, poached eggs, crispy pork belly pieces and a spicy hollandaise sauce, served with a side of breakfast potatoes). My husband ordered the Peanut Butter pancakes (served with strawberries and a whipped cream, topped with peanut butter chips). We also had coffee to start. The food was delivered quickly and piping hot. I dug into the potatoes first - hot and crispy on the outside, tender on the inside. They were topped with dried rosemary, which added an earthy flavor. The Benedict eggs were perfectly poached, and the hollandaise sauce had a surprising spicy flavor. The thing about this dish, though, was that the pork belly was a bit too much. Too rich, too fatty, too crunchy in places. I was only able to get through about 1/3 of the potatoes and one of the bennies, which surprised the hubs. My husband powered down the pancakes, even though he admitted the plate was a lot sweeter than he'd anticipated. He said the strawberries lent a PB&J vibe to the dish, and that the pancakes were thick and fluffy, and took up a lot of space in his gut, haha. Overall, we did enjoy our meals, though we'd both try a different meals if we come back. The prices are good for the amount of food you're given, and the coffee was super caffeinated. It's a good family-friendly spot and big enough for groups, too.More

A unique concept and a ton of fun. Everyone knows how to make a pancake and they supply the batter. We went early but by the time we left there was a line. Very popular. Cinnamon Role was delicious. Highly Recommended

I was there with my family and we all enjoyed making part of our breakfast on the table top pancake griddles. It was fun and kept the kids engaged. The staff was great and the owners came by to see how we liked the placed...and were truly interested in our response.More

Making our own pancakes was a blast! The banana bread dough and subsequent pancakes were incredible. The prepared food was terrific as well. Very hard decision on what to order. Gorgeous restaurant and great service. What a great new addition for breakfast, brunch and lunch!

I went to the soft opening of this new eatery pre-pandemic on March 3, 2020. Altho I was by myself I opted to try the on-table griddle to make my own pancakes just for the novelty of it. I chose the banana bread batter which...came in a squeeze bottle. Additions for me were walnuts, blueberry syrup and whipped cream. I did basic round pancakes and I did appreciate having a hot cake right off the griddle one by one. They were more than filling. I passed on the mimosa I would have liked as I found the $9.50 price high for a single mimosa mid week mid day. Maybe they will get that worked out. As for the pancakes it was $8 for the batter and $2 for each topping so banana-nut pancakes with syrup & whipped cream came to $14 + tax + tip - seems expensive for pancakes. I would recommend the pancake making maybe for a couple of kids to share so they can make shapes and decorate them. There's lots of good options on the menu besides the pancakes. This is a modern fun space owned by 2 brothers. North Park loves breakfast even when it extends to lunch so when the pandemic ends check out this new place.More

Just got to try this amazing place! Food was awesome and so many vegan and vegetarian choices! Making your own pancakes was fun and you get to choose your batter, topping, mixes, and syrups! Our table had multiple types so we tried so many. Prices...are really good too! Yummy bloody Mary with mango and pickle and tomato, and something else, I forgot there was so many things. Can't wait to go back and try more.More
