Took a trip into town especially to have brunch here. Ordered the eggs Benedict and OMG French toast. You can have half portions which is great as it allows you to try a few things. My husband had the pancake flight with pancake of the day, pineapple and blueberry pancakes. They were the best pancakes I've ever tasted. Juice and... More

We didn't wait for too long to get seats. We were there more around 10am or so to get food. First stop and not too bad. The atmosphere is very unique and has a Willy Wonka feel to it as described by our server. Lots of options, but I opted for something sweet instead of savory. Service was pretty fast.... More

OMG..so good. So much to choose from, there were 6 of us, so we each had something different! So amazing! I had to have the Pineapple Upside Down Pancakes. OMG. So amazing. There is always a line, so get there and put your name in, and settle in...there is always a wait. But, well worth it!

Visiting a friend in San Diego and decided to come here for breakfast. It wasn't as busy as I'm usually told. I ordered the French toast for breakfast and it was good.

The breakfast menu is wonderful. They have a half of dozen Benni's (Benedict's) that are delicious. The Benny Goodman is my favorite. Also try their corner beef hash. It's very good. The staff are very nice and the service is fast considering how many guests they run through the place. Unless you get there early expect a 30 min. to... More

Long wait then rather cramped table outside for two. But then the Bellini and coffee arrived - both wonderful. Then the food which was fantastic. If you are happy to wait I think you will be rewarded, we certainly were!

Overall everything was good from the service to the food itself. Interesting dishes like a breakfast pot pie which my girlfriend enjoyed. I had some french toast which was tasty with nice fresh fruit. Heard it can get busy, but we went early on a weekday and everything was great. Would definitely come back.

The crew here is lively and seem to genuinely enjoy their job. They say me at the table and simultaneously gave me a mug of fresh, delicious coffee! Maybe I looked like the needed it but I was glad I didn't have to wait. The menu is great. Labeled for vegetarians and gluten free options. Lots of selections to pick... More

We visited on a Monday, late morning and the place was hopping. We probably waited 45 minutes for a table. Our waiter was efficient and very helpful. Since we were on vacation and there isn't a Snooze in Wisconsin, we ordered a lot of food so we could try everything that sounded good. Our waiter suggested half portions where available... More
