A staple in the Dayton community with lines out the door on Saturdays and Sundays, but worth the wait! Their specialty is Apple Cinnamon pancakes, but the regular menu has brunch items, soups, sandwiches, etc as well. Reminiscent of the old Parkmoor Drive in or lunch counter kind of basic foods but consistently good. Line at 1130a on a Saturday... More

Had a early Doctors appointment across the street from a "fine place to procure great food". My wife LOVES the German style potato pancakes, so I bought a order of them to take home to her. Very thin and crispy. I really don't know of anywhere else that makes them anywhere as good. If you haven't tried them, you are... More

Ok, not kidding, the best breakfast ever. Nothing fancy but everything you want. Fried potatoes that you'll dream about, fresh baked muffins (some with cream cheese filling-ask), many different kinds of pancakes-all great, three egg omelettes that you'll never finish but you'll want to, and everything else your breakfast brain can crave. There's almost always a wait, but it's totally... More

My fellow classmates and I were staying in Xenia, Ohio for our graduation from seminary. We decided to venture out of the city of Xenia for a different breakfast experience. The hotel only had continental breakfast. One of our group did a google search and found the Golden Nugget. Wow! This was a fantastic choice! The food was absolutely delicious.... More

One of my favorite brunch restaurants in college. The pancakes are so good, as is everything on the menu. Also, you stand in line to be seated which is because you always know how much longer it will be.
