Arrive before 8am and already crowded . They provide free coffee while you are waiting in the gourmet food /gift shop which is a great idea. It is crowded and noisy like a diner ...but in a good way! Buckwheat pancakes with fresh blueberries were delicious!

In five or so years of visiting Hot Springs this is one place that I always recommend in an otherwise culinary desert.

Quaint family diner with an old time atmosphere. Super friendly and everything you would expect from a sweet little pancake place!

Get there real early or expect to sit outside waiting your town. This place is always swamped! And the reason is the breakfasts are fantastic!

I have been to this restaurant before, but have never written a review. Thought it is now time to write the review. I continue to have excellent service here. There is always a wait to get a table, however it is worth the wait. Also while you are waiting you are told that you can get free coffee next door,... More
