The food is wonderful and lots of it. Try all the pancakes with different fruit. Great fresh orange juice. Quaint decor. Would def visit again.

Came with our 2 kids on Sunday am. We actually had no wait and was able to get seated right away. Portions are huge! My husband really enjoyed eggs and ham and my kids and I all got pancakes. The bacon was cooked perfectly. Try the apple butter!! Delicious! We enjoyed our breakfast and left full and happy!

The pancake shop was exactly as advertised. Good solid American dinner style breakfast. The standouts are the sausage and ham. The meats are locally sourced and better than average. Service was great, people are friendly. Well worth the app of got are in Hotsprings for breakfast!

The breakfast was wonderful. The sausage was our highlight closely followed by the pancakes. I can't forget to comment on the outstanding coffee. We will definitely be back.

The place was packed but they were able to sit us in a matter of minutes. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. This was a great breakfast stop. We will surely be back!

The food was decent. I was hoping got done biscuits and gravy, but no such luck. The omelette was good except too much undecent cheese.
