3 of us had pancakes (one with blueberries, one with chocolate chips and one plain), and the 4th had the Early Riser. Plus 2 sides of bacon. Just your basic breakfast, and you can't beat the price. Good service.

They have some unique, delicious omelets to chose from. I've had several there -- all excellent. Delicious home fries and bacon cooked just right. Service is always attentive and friendly. Cheryl is great! On weekends, their homemade corned beef hash is very good.

Nice atmosphere, entertainment on weekends. Stopped with friends for an evening meal. Results were disappointing. Two had stuffed cabbage which was ok but mashed potatoes were cold.

This is one of the top breakfast places in Bradenton. The food was fresh, plentiful and delicious. The wait staff was very friendly efficient and knowledgeable. Highly recommend this place for the prices and food quality.
